Painted in pink, Johari Bazaar is the oldest market in Jaipur popular for its vibrant ambiance, delicious food and premium quality Kundan jewellery. Considered a haven for the jewellery junks, the market offers a wide variety of glittering Jaipuri jewellery made in gold, silver, diamonds, emeralds, and rubies. The Hindi word ‘johari’ itself translates to ‘jeweller’ in English. Dotted with compact shops strewn with colourful apparels, flamboyant juttis, and exuberant lehengas, the narrow labyrinthian lanes are bustling with activity all day long. Situated at the Badi Chaupar and Sanganeri Gate, the bazaar is especially popular among people getting ready for weddings.
From textiles to handicrafts, pottery, quilts, apparels and footwear, there is nothing you can not find here. Jaipuri cotton quilt is another one of the top selling products at the bazaar. The market also has some high-end big brand stores but the highlight of Johari Bazaar is the street stalls and stray shops littered with goods at throw-away prices. However, you should remember to bargain the prices before you settle on something.
