|Shishir Saras Mela at Dilli Haat|
I have heard a lot of people talk about Dilli Haat and was keen to visit it. I was not aware that there were two outlets, or I would have tried to find out more about it. We went to the one close to the INA Metro Station. It was around 7 in the evening.

I felt that it looked like something akin to our Kala Ghoda Fair in Mumbai, but much toned down.

The place was alive with a lot of people around despite the cold. We walked all around and bought some bangles and earrings for Vinitha.

Finally, we settled down at a Rajasthani food outlet and ordered one thali and shared it between us. We also asked for one plate of bhajias – this had one mirchi bhajia and one khanda bhajia. The food was good, not great.

I went to dilli haat in the afternoon...it was pretty hot. should have gone in the evening maybe. you're right..it is reminiscent of mumbai's kala ghoda festival :-) but i believe the shopping at dilli haat is way betterReplyDelete
actually it depends on the weather. I would have been better off going in the afnoon as the weather was extremely cold when I went to Delhi. And you are right, the shopping is way better at Dilli Haat - there are more stalls and the stuff priced about half. I can vouch for that as I was at Kala Ghoda today and the same item that I saw in Dilli Haat costing Rs. 200 was priced at Rs. 450. This year, the Kala Ghoda Fest is not as fascinating as it had been over the last two years. :)

Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing. Dilli Haat is a must do if you are on a vacation in the capital. Under the open sky, numerous little kiosks sell jewellery, paintings, fabrics, saris, pottery, furniture, and of course food from across the country. Check out Dilli Haat timings, entry fee and many more.ReplyDelete
