Shopping in Bhubaneswar

The markets and shops in Bhubaneshwar are well stocked with locally made textiles and saris as well as handcrafted items, so your shopping experience is bound to be fruitful. Silver filigree work called Tarakasi, stone and woodcarving, Patta paintings, silk and cotton fabrics, tie and dye textiles, patchwork, bamboo basketry, brass and bell metal work, horn work, and many other famous local crafts of Orissa can be bought from the local dealers. Check with your hotel staff, driver or guide for the best shopping options. They often act as agents and can take visitors directly to the weavers/ their agents. In common with most major cities in India, Bhubaneswar too has just one main shopping centre in the middle of the city.

Of course, there are a number of smaller markets but the quality and prices cannot be guaranteed. Purchases can be made from outlets run by the government’s Department of Handicrafts or at the many private shops. Bargaining is the done thing except at some of the larger stores and government emporia, so try your luck and see if you can walk away with the spoils.
