Shopping In rishikesh

Besides revelling in adventure sports like river rafting, trekking and camping, and seeking solace at temples and ashrams, there is one other amazing experience you can indulge in Rishikesh – Shopping. While in the city, you can buy traditional handicrafts and heirlooms as well as other goods. Following are a few things you should buy while exploring the city:

Wooden Objects

Both the regions of Uttarakhand, Kumaon as well as Garhwal, are known for their craft of wood carving. While wandering in Rishikesh, you can come across many houses with meticulous carvings on their doors, giving an insight into their traditional art. Drawings of birds, animals and flowers are quite common in these. Here, you will find many shops selling intricately carved wooden objects like jewellery boxes and showpieces in both small and large sizes.

Paintings

Another art which prevails in the city is the Mughal style of painting. Uttarakhand, especially the Garhwal region, is the hub of an iconic style of miniature painting, popularly known as the Garhwal Painting. These can be a perfect item for you to decorate your home with. Aipan is one traditional art of the state, which you must check out while on a Rishikesh tour. These are a form of rangoli designs that are of great cultural and religious significance.

Dekaras

Dekara refers to three-dimensional clay models of deities made for the purpose of worshiping. These are made with fine clay, which is mixed with vibrant colours. During the festival season, you will find many such fascinating items here.

Garhwali Attire

The culture of Rishikesh is quite vibrant, and you can see it in the way the locals dress. Traditionally, the women of the region wear a long skirt with a choli and orni. On special occasions, you will also find them dressed in a pichora. Whereas, you will see men wear a dhoti or lungi with a kurta. It is sometimes accompanied with a headgear like a turban. However, many of those have turned to wearing shirts and pants.

Religious Objects

Rishikesh is known for its temples and ashrams; therefore, the first things you will come across in the local markets are religious objects like Rudraksha malas and statues of deities. Also, you will find a variety of religious texts that may be hard to find anywhere else in the country.

Where to Buy

One of the most popular markets in the area, Lakshman Jhula is where you can buy all sorts of religious and household items. While strolling here, you will find a number of stalls and shops selling artefacts with which you can decorate your house. These traditional objects represent the culture of the people of Rishikesh There are also several stores that offer Ayurvedic medicines and oils.
Another good shopping destination in the city is Ram Jhula market, located at the end of the sacred bridge. It is quite similar to the market near Lakshman Jhula. It is dotted with small and big shops that trade in everything from books and jewellery to toys and clothes. It will certainly suffice the shopper in you.
One more thing you can do while searching for good souvenirs in Rishikesh markets is trying the local cuisine. You will find these streets lined with a number of restaurants and dhabas serving authentic Garhwali and Kumaoni cuisine. Do make it a point to visit one of these and gorge on some regional specialities.
