Bhopal Shopping



Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh is a quixotic blend of the ancient traditions and contemporary lifestyle that makes it a delight to spend a vacation in the sprawling city. Bhopal is a shopper's paradise with its plethora of goods and merchandise. The charm of Bhopal shopping is augmented by strolling down the esplanade line with old havelis and revered mosques and glancing at the wares and paraphernalia the hawkers have laid out to display.

The two principal shopping areas of Bhopal include the New Market and the Chowk areas. The Mrignayani Emporium and the Handicrafts Emporium are the quintessential handicraft showrooms in Bhopal from where tourists can pick up souvenirs, keepsakes and cute knick knacks that make wonderful gifts for family and friends.

The Women's Co-op Zari Center, Pir Gate is another handicraft center that sells bags, intricately embellished by fine zari work and dazzling chiffon saris that gives its wearer a stunning appearance. A major highlight of Bhopal Shopping that attracts tourists by the droves are the fine tussar silks, trademark of Bhopal. Another eminent shopping complex, the MP State Emporium, GTB Complex, TT Nagar is a shopaholics paradise with its exquisite collection of raw silks, tussar and chanderi silks.

The consummate skill, talent and dexterity of the craftsmen from Bhopal are manifested in the elaborate zardosi works and soft muslin pieces that they weave with great care and diligence. These fineries are very much in vogue with the urban crowds and city slickers who pick up these pieces in large numbers.
