Sarafa bazaar is one of Jodhpur’s many markets dedicated to one specific type of good. Alongside the silver market you also have the ‘Kapron ka Bazaar’ (Cloth), the ‘Dhaan Mandi’ (Grain), ‘Mirchi Bazaar’ (Chillies & Spices) and Betel Nut Lane. More informally, Circuit House Road is also home to a concentration of Jodhpur’s best antique shops and they are an absolute must-visit. The city is famous for its antiques, and rightly so. When shopping, the boutiques filled with old doors, windows and architectural detailing are incredible, but it’s worthwhile to note that this ‘architectural salvage’ is sourced by ripping heritage havelis apart for their detailing (similarly there are charges for exporting particularly old objects). More ethical to purchase are the smaller pieces and antiques and there are certainly plenty of places that sell them. Lalji Handicrafts is deservedly the most famous of these shops. Entering, there are no rules are to what you can find. Everything from axes to old wedding photos to chess pieces to cut crystal martini glasses, the shop is a treasure trove of trinkets and curios. They will ship anything you buy, so no need to lug that elephant-shaped footstall across India and it’s lovely to have something tangible to remind you of the opulence of Jodhpur when you return home.
