Pushkar’s Sadar Bazaar is lined with enchanting little shops and is a good place for picking up gifts. Many of the vibrant Rajasthani textiles originate from Barmer, south of Jaisalmer. There’s plenty of silver and beaded jewellery catering both to local and foreign tastes, including some heavy tribal pieces. As Pushkar is touristy, you’ll have to haggle.
The range of Indian-music CDs makes this market an excellent place to sample local tunes.
