Connaught Place

No trip to Delhi is complete without a visit to Connaught Place or CP as it is popularly called.  Built in  1931, this circular, colonnaded market, characteristically painted white, is a store house for everything that is Indian. There is nothing that one cannot buy here. The shops which form an inner circle and another outer circle, are interspersed by several eating houses, both fast food joints like Mc Donald's and Subway, to the most cozy restaurants where you can have an intimate lunch or dinner with your loved ones. Being the central business district of the capital, Connaught Place also houses the head offices of major banks, airlines, tour operators, plus a number of cinema halls. CP is the perfect place to while away your time as you stroll through the area, window shopping or just people gazing.Tourists are drawn to this shopping arcade and visit it repeatedly, if for nothing but its architecture and its representation of a very cosmopolitan  city.

Connaught  Place is  where you will find  swanky showrooms selling clothes of international and local brands, footwear and leather goods, jewelry (gold, diamond,silver, semi-precious stones), sports goods and equipment, books, curios, handicrafts and gift items, silk material and silk garments, furnishings, crockery and lots more.

Apart from the regular shops, there are a number of mobile shops that have sprung up on the side walks  and between the solid, white pillars. Some of the more noticeable ones are the book stalls, stalls selling cheap trinkets, belts, sunglasses, rustic embroidery and handicrafts, posters with whacky messages and quirky one -liners, etc.
