I was looking at the About website's guide to shopping bazaars in India by region. I think this is a great way to make the most of your travels to the country. For example, Rajashtan is best know for buying low cost semi precious stones. There are shops located throughout this desert region. Orissa is known for its jewelry. Karnataka and Mysore are known for sandalwood, incense, and ayurvedic powders. Uttar Pradesh is known for brass and copper figurines. Goa is known for specialized alcoholic drinks and clothes, and Maharashtra is known for shoes. I think Goa makes a lot of sense since it's most famous for its beaches. Other regions included in the travel guide include Kolkata for house decorations and trinkets, Chennai for silks, and Bihar for wood carvings. I recognize Bihar as the birthplace of the Dubey's character's love in the movie Monsoon Wedding. I know that places like Turkey are known for its shopping bazaars, but in my mind India is the place to go since it's historically THE place to be for all things trade. What is your experience in a traditional Indian bazaar?
