Well-known among domestic and international tourists to Delhi, Dilli Haat is a successful attempt to promote the inimitable handicrafts from all parts of the country at one place. An upgraded version of traditional village haat (market), this clean, open-air and spacious market offers space of 62 stalls to the sellers hailing from different regions. Each seller is allotted a stall for maximum of 15 days, thereby allowing more numbers of crafts sellers to attract the visitors visiting the place in huge flocks.
From embellished footwear and stylish fabrics to ethnic jewellery and gems, there is no dearth of extraordinary crafts sold at Dilli Haat. Some other popular categories include metalware, brassware, rosewood carvings and other amazing utility and home décor items. Thatched roof cottages and kiosks create a traditional Indian market atmosphere which adds to the pleasure of being here. You can bargain and receive great discounts on each of these items.
Dilli Haat is also a heaven for food lovers. Momos, chicken, kebabs, dhokla and other popular snacks, sweets and delicious preparations are enough to entertain your taste buds. Many food festivals are also organized here from time to time. An exhibition hall at the market hosts several craft exhibitions for the Indian craft lovers.
Dilli Haat is located on some popular bus routes connecting it with ISBT as well as other parts of Delhi. Each of these routes tends to get busier as the day advances and you can experience huge traffic jams.
The closest Delhi rail head is the New Delhi Railway Station, about 9 km. from the market. An auto-rickshaw or a cycle-rickshaw can be your preferred transportation mode to reach Dilli Haat. INA Metro Station is less than 1 km. from this destination and accessible on foot.
