Kamla Nagar Market is a shopping and eating hub for all college going students, it has a wide range of food joints to clothing centers, being one of the oldest markets of Delhi - Kamla Nagar Market has a touch of old architecture and ancient buildings. It's a great market for everything that a person needs. Momo point, Pepper and Big boss are some of the top rated food joints in Kamla Nagar.
This a huge market and the only market maybe where you will find only college students. There are really good shopping options for college goers, at affordable prices! It has some really good eating joints too. A good place to buy statement jewellery and wallets. I like wallets there, they have variety like no other market in Delhi! Nice place.
On my first day in college, a senior told me Kamla Nagar is the heart of North campus. The sincerity of this line seems obvious to me now. A market that sells everything that the naked eye can seek, but that's not even the best part. The best part is what you 'feel'. Now that sounds like a cliche, but it's true all the same. Kamla Nagar houses everything that you need for college life. It is a foodie's heaven, it takes care of your love for food and your pocket. It has close proximity to all the other North campus colleges and that is the reason why the cultural fest is on all throughout the year. Kamla Nagar is a celebration! And it excites me to just be part of it.
This is a one stop destination for all the fashion buffs out there. You will find lots of shops of designer tailors or jeans or shirts or pants or saris or blouses! The variety in Kamla Nagar market is really good. Moreover, perfect place for foodies. Bittoo Tikki Waala is an obvious place. And you can find Bhaturas at the famous Chacha di Hatti. This is one of the many good places in Delhi!
Located in the galis of North Delhi, the market is huge covering almost 4 wide streets. The smell of incense sticks and the perfume in the air gives you a very pleasant feeling. One of the oldest markets of Delhi, the main idea is that the old doors open into shops.
