Dilli haat: A picture tale

Sometimes it is good to take break from your busy schedule and walk to a place which is full of vibrant colours, energy. But in Delhi is there any such place? Because all the historical monuments is closed in the evening and even if it is open hardly you can roam. The laila-majnu has already occupied those places as their birth right.

I was on a search for a place like this which is quiet yet again cultural and most importantly have something natural. Dilli haat is one such place where you can find all these features. Dilli haat is amalgation of culture, heritage, village, and craft from all parts of India, art, music and many more. The list does not end here.


Dilli haat is an open air arts and crafts exhibition. This is permanent market created by Delhi Tourism Department in order to promote local tourist. Their main aim is to remove middle man so that these craftsmen can sell their products directly to the customers. The urban village features products from most states of India. Be it Gujarati embroidered shawls, Punjab’s phulkari work, Orissa silk sarees, Bihar’s madhubani painting in saress and wall decoration both, Kashmiri woolen suit, Hyderabadi pearls, Rajasthani wall decoration, you think about it and it is there.





But the day I visited was Saturday and there was musical evening being held. Local quawali singers were entertaining the audiences. Their voice was so enchanting.

Go to Dilli haat any time that place has its own aura. Lovely ambience with light music of shehnai in the background makes the place more relaxing. To feel the music you need to visit this urban village. This tour is incomplete if you don’t go through these pictures.






 Oh did I mention about the food stalls over there. Even cuisines are also from different states to relish your taste buds. It is basically paradise for foodie who wants to try all staple food of the states. Right from north east to Kashmiri famous Kwaha all is available there.
I had a lovely time there seeing, listening and doing little bit of shopping. So, next whenever you get time spent here in the midst of all traditional things.
