Purohit ji Ka Katla

Disclaimer: The lanes are very narrow, so carry only your purse and a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated.

Purohit Ji Ka Katla, has four main entrances, viz. Johari Bazar, Tripolia, Chandpol and Badi Chaupar. The best way is to take an e-rickshaw from your nearest stop, enjoy the beautiful city view and get dropped near Johari Bazar. Then as you enter the katla, you will see various shops of sarees and lehengas. All shops are unique and have reasonable bridal wear that is difficult to find in the city nowadays.

Lehengas

The most attractive bridal wear and lehengas which caught our sight were at Pushpa Sarees Centre- shop no.8. The bridal wear starts from 7k and reaches up to 22k, and we don’t think you can find any beautiful bridal wear at such a budgeted cost.

Sarees

After having a look at the lehanagas and bridal wear, we moved on to see the saree collection. The gorgeous georgette sarees with floral work and printed sarees were at display. If you are looking for a saree to wear in the next wedding to attend, definitely visit Kamal Sarees. Moreover, if you are looking for embroidery work you can have a look at Sri Radhe Krishna Saree, shop no. 9 which has its sarees starting from the range of 7k. Unbelievable, isn’t it?

Noto Ki Mala

Going ahead, we stopped by looking at “noto ki mala”. Quiet an interesting concept of making a garland out of the real currency notes and it actually has a great selling market place. The garland of Rs. 10 was of Rs. 1000 and of Rs. 100 notes turned out to be of Rs.10k. Available at Shop no.16 at Agarwal Enterprises, this shop keeps all the varieties of malas that you are looking for.
