Jaipur Bound. In Search of Antiques
As I write this, I’m about to board an IndiGo flight at the Chennai airport to Jaipur. I have never been to this city before…something that I have been ashamed of. Every foreigner who couchsurfed at my home raves about the city and they are surprised that I haven’t visited the city yet. So, I’m glad I’ll finally be striking it off my guilt list.
Another reason why I’m excited going there is because I have read in multiple places that Jaipur is a good hunting ground for antiques. I take that with a pinch of salt knowing that article writers often confuse between handicrafts (which have an antique feel) and the true antiques that’s aged over time.
I’ve googled deep and the only results I have got are the web savvy handicrafts showrooms. No information about a place like Chor Bazaar in Mumbai or a Moore Market in Chennai. I’m hoping that the locals there will have information about nice places that stock antiques.
If you have been to the city and know a place that I should check out, please do let me know. You can write to me at Kiruba @ Kiruba.com. Thanks in advance.
