With their wealth of dazzling traditional handicrafts, Rajasthan and the Golden Triangle cities are a paradise for shopaholics. Goods from all across India are on sale in the markets and emporia of Delhi, Jaipur, Agra and Udaipur – the four main shopping hubs – and it’s worth setting aside time in each for a spot of souvenir hunting.

Textiles are of course the big local speciality. Embroidered patchwork and mirror-inlaid quilts are among the most popular buys, and if you’re lucky you can still find a few antique skirts, veils or sari tops. The region around Jaipur is renowned for its block printing. Silver jewellery and miniature paintings are also still made locally. Your guide will know where to pick up the best quality items at fair prices.

Other typically Rajasthani items worth looking out for include puppets, or ‘katpooli’, which come in various sizes and characters, and make great presents for children. Ceramic lovers will enjoy pieces of Persian-influenced Blue Pottery, made in factories around Jaipur. Leather goods, notably slippers made from camel hide, are also ubiquitous.
