Where to buy Kurtas on a Monday?


I'm arriving into New Delhi on a Sunday night, and will only have Monday to shop before embarking on a group tour. Where will I be most likely to find a good selection of kurtas and salwars out of the places that are open on Monday: Khan Market, Chandni Chowk, or Connaught Place?

Thanks in advance!

Chandi Chowk, Connaught Place, South Ex Market and Khan Market etc remain open on Mondays. Apart from this you may try Shopping Malls at various locations in Delhi which usually operate all 7 days.

@Arpit_Jaipur: Karol Bagh is closed on Monday

@OP: You can head for Amar Colony (Opp. Lajpat Nagar). This place has a lot of wholesellers for Kurtis and you will find the best variety kurtis. Also, since they are wholesellers, they do not have huge margins on clothing and buying Kurtis from here will not make a deep hole in your pockets too... Lolz..

Take care..

It being your first morning in Delhi, head to Fabindia & Anokhi at Khan Market. Easy, convenient, you'll be hassled less than else where & quality is great.

Expect to pay 700 rs. plus.

safe & happy travels!

Kurtas and salwars are widely sold all over the city. Everything is open on Monday.

Where you shop depends on what style you want. The stuff that lower-middle and middle-class markets carry is either synthetic fabrics, or it is cheap bright mill cotton. The stitching and fall of these is often not good quality, but it is very inexpensive. You can get a cheap kurta-salwar set for Rs 300. Often many of them have lots of bling, and in those cases the prices are higher. The areas to shop for this kind of thing are Karol Bagh and the Kinari Bazaar area of Old Delhi.

If you want ready-to-wear handloom cotton, then there are fixed price shops which are in more upper-middle and upscale areas. A good place to shop is the N-Block Market in Greater Kailash - 1, it has Fab India, Kilol and Anokhi, apart from lots of other stuff, and it also has a nice cafe called Diva. Other options are Meharchand Market or Khan Market.

Lots of stores in KB are closed Monday, but the street merchants are open for business.

We prefer the Khadi shop for good quality kurtas. Also Fabindia - it depends on how much you want to spend and what quality you are looking for.
