Ibn Battuta traversed 44 countries over the span of 25 years before returning home.
His travels were comforted by the hospitality and generosity of the locals, particularly the vendors who introduced him to different delicacies and wares. The bazaars of Jaipur have had the same effect on us, a place where vendors regularly introduce us to treat’s we’ve never heard of, wares we fall in love with. It is the heartbeat of its city.
Let us introduce you to a few of the jewels of the Johri Bazaar, with some our favorite women in noon.
