Dakshinapan Shopping Centre information
It’s worth facing the soul-crushing 1970s architecture for Dakshinapan’s wide range of government emporia. There’s plenty of tack but many shops offer excellent-value souvenirs, crafts and fabrics. Several shops close by 7pm.
Try Tribes India for brass figures and greetings cards, Aranya for charming gifts made from recycled materials, Purbasha Tripura for bargain caneware and Kashmir Emporium for colourful papier mâché work (boxes from ₹90).
