Jaipur is famous for its shopping and what better time to be here than at the jaipur Shopping Festival that is held from 25 September for a month right up till Diwali. The markets of Jaipur are known for the wonderful shopping it offers from beautiful bandhini and leheriya saris and block printed textiles to wooden handicrafts and colourful puppets, from semi precious stones to the most exquisite jewellery fit for maharanis in glittering gold and polki, gems and silver. Jaipur is where tourists shop to their hearts content and Indians throng the markets looking for wonderful bargains. It truly is a treasure trove where shopping is concerned.
