India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI - by Puja Raina Ma­hal­dar

The Am­rit­sari Bazaar that houses more than 50 out­lets is a one- stop- shop for all your Pun­jabi hand­i­crafts needs. The bazaar’s dé­cor grabs your at­ten­tion as soon as you en­ter with its huge artis­tic am­bi­ence and with the tra­di­tion­ally dec­o­rated halls that are laid out with jali, mir­ror and wood works that set the tone for a great day out for hand­i­craft shop­ping. Spread out over 15,000 square feet, the bazaar lo­cated at the top floor of the Al­pha One mall is a stark con­trast from the rest of the mall that re­tails more ur­bane, trendy fash­ion wear and ap­parel. Head here to pick up home dé­cor items or in­ter­est­ing made out in var­i­ous tra­di­tional styles such as phulkari, lac­quered wood­work and tra­di­tional jew­ellery styles. Pun­jabi jutis, hand- wo­ven car­pets and pop­u­lar del­i­ca­cies like pa­pads and wadiyan are must buys here.
