Paharganj, New Delhi

The basics

At the heart of Paharganj is the Main Bazaar, a long road flanked with shops, restaurants, and hotels. Shops closest to the railway station tend to sell suitcases and goods marketed toward domestic travelers, but as you go deeper in, you’ll start coming across places selling hippie clothes, tapestries, and souvenirs, alongside ultra-cheap backpacker hotels. Even if you aren’t staying here, it’s a great place to shop and plenty of shopping tours stop through the area.

When to get there

Like many markets in Delhi, Paharganj is officially closed on Mondays, though many shops still remain open. It tends to be crowded all the time, owing largely to its proximity to the railway station and its constant influx of passengers. Visiting before noon will likely get you the best deals (as some Indian merchants are prone to giving deals to the first customer of the day for good luck).
