DELHI HAAT…an ideal hang out place

Delhi Haat attracts me most for its open atmosphere and being the hub for Indian ethnicity which brings you the art and handicrafts of India created by the artists and craftsmen in traditional techniques, designs and colors. You can explore and experience the enthralling world of Indian Artifacts, Painting, Metalware, Stonework, Woodwork, Terracotta, Jewelry, Lac and Glass work, Leatherware, Blue Pottery, Home Decor items and traditional Indian Puppets.

It just not only a stylized or ethnic mall-market of tourist craft junk but rather a mall-market of tourist craft junk with a nominal admission fee.

Haat implies to an impermanent traveling marketplace, this place stays with surprises from new vendors rotating from time to time at a given festival or Mela organized by the authorities.

Delhi Haat has a food-court type zone offering traditional cookery delights and the menu comes straight and special from India’s various states. Colorful festivals and multi-dimensional exhibitions occasionally wander through as well with troupes and singers making merry with the visitors.

I believe it is the real good place specially on Sunday afternoons when they organize special programs, at times folk dancers, singers and a peculiar old man is also seen around making free portraits of the children around. It is indeed a good and fun filled hanging out place with family and friends.
