The holy city of Amritsar is a prime destination for travellers looking for cultural diversity, religious heritage and historical significance. It is the home to the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh and Wagah Border. This city is a travellers’ paradise.
So now talking about shopping, Amritsar has plenty. It is not a typical shopping destination but the place has its character and we can indulge in a long souvenir hunt in the city and the street market of Amritsar. We can shop for items like jootis, Patiala salwar and handicrafts like phulkari and more from these markets.
It is one of the oldest markets in the city. Hall Bazaar holds a significant place when it comes to shopping in Amritsar. It is located on the way to the Golden Temple. This market is a must-visit place for every traveller who is keen on collecting local stuff. Here, we will get everything we want, from gadgets to trendy accessories, from daily products to local handicrafts. We must hunt for designer Chinese lamps and fancy jootis which are true USP of the Bazaar.
It is a very old market area of Amritsar. Guru Bazaar is an integral part of the city’s shopping culture and consumer habits. No one knows since when the market is in existence and this gives it heritage value. The lane that houses this market is in between Guru Ka Mahal and Golden Temple. There are numerous shops in the market that attract locals and travellers. This place is particularly known for traditional jewellery and ornaments made out of precious and semi-precious stones.
