Sunder Nagar is situated on Mathura road, south of the Purana Qila (Old Fort) and close to the zoological gardens. It is an upmarket residential area in the center of Delhi. The Sunder Nagar Market is well known for its art galleries and handicraft shops. The shopping market surrounds a beautiful park. This is one shopping market in Delhi that has not changed with the times. It is less showy and is quieter than the other markets and the shops have a reputation of stocking superior quality, stylish and classy products.
The main reason for this is that it is a market for antiques (many are replicas), handicrafts and silver Jewellry, that interest only a few. So art and handicrafts lovers are the only few shopping here. This Delhi shopping market retains its leisurely charm and lazy ambience as a hassle free quiet neighbourhood shopping market. There are no bargain shops for garments in this market .
Asia Tea house is a wonderful place to visit for all tea lovers. They have some excellent teas from the estates in Assam and Darjeeling that are not easily available elsewhere. Walk into the Mascot’s book shop and you will find some rare coffee table books. If you are looking for restaurants, there is BACI an Italian restaurant and Nathu Sweets for the Indian delicacies.
The SunderNagar Diwali Mela is very famous in Delhi. One week ahead of Diwali , there are stalls put up by boutique owners who sell ethnic & western wear garments, jewellery, accessories, beauty products, packaged food and so on. People love the food stalls , the giant wheel and other games the organisers put up. The festive ambience keeps everyone in a jolly mood.
