The heart of the city and the area of the most famous Paltan Bazaar (Market), one needs at least 3-4 hours to explore in the marketplace. There are also various delights like the Gaylord’s which is a famous ice-cream parlour, the “Chaat wali gali” which has mouth watering delights in shops lined up in a narrow lane, the Laxmi shop which is the oldest in the market and serves South Indian cuisines.
The locals say that one can find anything and everything in the market. There are shops lined up one after another including clothes, shoes, bags, cosmetics, stationary and a lot more. A good bargaining can get you good stuff for cheap rates most of the times. The market also has a few brand outlets but most of the shops have local owners.
The best way to reach the market is by an auto or a bus from anywhere, be it the railway station, the Isbt or Dehradun Airport.
