Johari Bazaar in Jaipur: An Enriching Retreat for the Shopaholics
Location: Opposite Sanganeri Gate, Jaipur, Rajasthan
Jaipur, the most vibrant city of the country, is not only rich in its colourful beauty and cultural heritage, but also in its bounteous offerings. Exquisite palaces, ancient havelis, sand dunes, lakes, etc., are just some of the mystic charms of the city that attracts travelers from all over the world. Apart from its visual delicacies, the city of Jaipur is highly popular as a lavish shopping terminal, and the Johari Bazar is a shopper’s paradise! From exclusive gold and silver jewellery to traditional tie and dye fabrics, you get everything at this shopping hub.
Two of the lanes, the Gopalji ka Rasta and the Haldion ka Rasta, offer a rich collection of goldsmiths and silversmiths, with the most impressive Rajasthani jewellery and precious gemstones. This place is an important centre for dexterous cutting and polishing of precious stones. The most popular attraction amongst the tourists is the exclusive Kundan and Minakari jewellery that is found in abundance here. The other emblematic offerings of this market include block-printed fabrics, blue pottery, Mojaris, sandalwood items, stone carvings, batik paintings, and many others.
The Johari Bazaar is like heaven on Earth for a shopaholic to go on a shopping spree. A visit to Jaipur will most certainly be incomplete without a visit to this market!
