A “Haat” refers to a local or makeshift market in an Indian village. Here people can buy things such as daily utensils, home decor items and are and prepared food items. “Dilli Haat“, an open air craft bazaar cum food plaza run by Delhi tourism and transportation development corporation is a very popular tourist destination in the heart of South Delhi attracts local and tourists alike due to availability of quality handicrafts and a great variety from all states of India. 


The market began in 1996 and is strategically located in the central place of New Delhi, opposite the famous INA Market. It has stalls by various artisans from different parts of India. Similarly, the food of every part of the country was made available to the visiting guests. Our personal recommendation at Resettle are the Sikkim’s momos!

You can also find products like rosewood and sandalwood carvings, embellished camel hide footwear, gems, metal crafts, beads, sophisticated fabric and drapery, brassware, and silk and wool fabrics. An entry ticket just for Rs 20 gives you access to this wonderful open air delight. 


Dilli Haat opens at 10 AM and closes at 10 PM everyday. In winters day time strolling in the Dilli Haat is good but in summers, it is advisable to visit in evenings once the sun is setting. Ample parking facilities are available at a chargeable basis.
