5 Affordable Amritsari Markets to Shop to your Heart's Content

Amritsar is synonymous with the Golden Temple. Pilgrims and devotees from all over the world travel to be awed by its grandeur and aura. The trip is usually also incomplete without savouring the delicious street food, visiting Jallianwala Bagh and Partition Museum and interacting with the fierce Sikhs and Nihangs. Besides these, the city is lined with a number of vibrant and frenzied bazaars and haats too which are flooded with local stuff.

If you are taking a Delhi to Amritsar flight anytime soon, make sure to drop by to pick a few unique souvenirs. Shopaholics can shop traditional handicrafts, ornaments and fancy juttis to their heart’s content. Most of them are of high quality and at affordable rates. Below are the most popular markets for a gala shopping experience.

1. Lahori Gate Market

This is one of the most budget-friendly destinations packed with products indigenous to Amritsar. Before flying back in your Amritsar to Delhi flights, pick heavy or casual cotton suits in Phulkari designs, Pashmina shawls, jams, pickles, footwear and jewellery in abundance. Make sure you bargain to crack great deals. Further, head over to the nearby stalls to relish the local dishes like kulcha, wadiyan and papad.

2. Shastri Market

Tourist footfall is huge here since it is located in close proximity to the Golden Temple. Clothes, traditional handmade jewellery, ethnic wear, Patiala salwar and Punjabi juttis and woolens here will leave you spellbound. You can check out the wholesale shops for more affordable rates.

3. Hall Bazaar

It is a seasoned market with a beautiful rustic charm. Tourists and locals come here to shop for carpets, footwear, shawls, kirpan, electronic gadgets, lamps, garments, food products and handicraft items. These are worth splurging on since you will hardly find the same designs in any part of India. You can also see the Gandhi Gate here which is made from Mughal-style architecture with a huge clock on it. After deboarding your New Delhi to Amritsar flight, do check out the lassi, fish Amritsari and makkai di roti from the restaurants.

4. Guru Bazaar

The market is famous among ladies since it boasts of a massive collection of silver and traditional jewellery. These are authentic and the prices are reasonable.  The lanes and alleys here are filled with numerous shops selling beautiful earthen lamps, kadas, Sikh turbans, sandalwood and ivory chess pieces, glittering diyas and idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. There are about 2500 shops for you to stuff your bags from before boarding Amritsar to Delhi flights back home.

5. Katra Jaimal Singh Bazaar

This heritage market is famous for top quality garments in attractive and unique Phulkari designs. Tourists can also pick bangles, juttis, kameez, beaded dresses, designer shirts and suits for men and woodwork from here. While booking flight tickets from Delhi to Amritsar, make sure to check out nearby eateries. Here you can enjoy authentic paratha, lassi and tandoori chicken. The market usually comes alive in the evening so plan your visit accordingly.

The other famous markets here are Trilium Mall, Lawrence Road and Kapda Baazar. Make sure to check out their operational hours before your visit.
