A WALK THROUGH THE BAZAARS OF ALMORA

20,000.00

The bazaars of Almora are a fascinating mix of traditions and serve almost as a textbook on the history of the town! We commence this trail from Chaughanpata, the heart of Almora always bustling with activity due to its numerous tourist accommodations. It is the focal point where routes coming from Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Nainital and Malla bazaar converge. The bazaars of Almora started to be established from the period of Raja Kalyan Chand (1560 – 1568) of the Chand dynasty who shifted his capital from Champawat to Almora in 1563. During Holi, come to Lala Bazaar to enjoy the famous Baithaki holi. The narrow path from the Lala Bazaar leads to the Karkhana (workshops) Bazaar. Besides the workshops that manufacture several items, it has beautiful houses of wood. The architecture of these dwellings has religious sentiments too. Their front doors known as ‘kholli’, carved with images of Lord Krishna, Ganesh, Durga and Bhairav. On a walking trail, the time doesn’t matter, as you can stop and meander around at your will.

Lala bazaar is pedestrian friendly walk with its walkway made of corbelled stone. One can find convenient parking spaces in Chaughanpata
