Since times immemorial, the Haat has been a flourishing and sought after destination for major crafts, handloom and handicraft exhibitions in the country. Dilli Haat INA is a one stop preface to the heart of India, a window to country’s vast cultural diversity. Artisans view Dilli Haat INA as a clean, systematic and open platform to present their creations. Also, the popularity of the Haat makes external marketing of products needless over displaying them here.

Nearly 150 artisans from all over the nation get the opportunity to showcase their creations at the premises every fortnight. In a bid to strengthen the tourism circuit of Delhi, these creators directly connect with the buyers and stakeholders, in turn significantly impacting entrepreneurship trends of the country.

Dilli Haat INA recently was the venue for ongoing 29th edition of Dastkari Haat Crafts Bazaar (1st - 15th January). The festival showcased intricate craftsmanship and talent of Tibetan award winning artisans along with other craftsmen from different states of the country. Some of the artisans in this festival had carried forward the age old tradition of making handicrafts and handlooms.

Paper mache works from Kashmir to the rare Blue pottery of Delhi and even terracotta vessels sizing a finger were some of the attractions presented at this Bazaar. The exhibition also highlighted the cultural identity of Dilli Haat INA, by having put together some specialized cultural performances by Tibetan dancers and melodious music by traditional Ramdev folk singers from Kutch in the evening.

Dilli Haat INA has always been a clean and hygienic place and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan activities are thoroughly being executed at the venue. “14 housekeeping persons, 137 dustbins and officers of Delhi Tourism ensure that the place doesn’t fall short of sanitation and amenities in any manner. I have inspected Dilli Haat INA and the designated officers of Delhi Tourism have been ensuring cleanliness and hygiene throughout the venue. Standardized food stalls, cultural evenings along with other facilities make the venue systematic and compact with its true essence intact,” says Ramesh Tiwari, MD & CEO, DTTDC. A footfall of around 3000 visitors a day, rising to nearly 5000 on weekends, Dilli Haat INA is a contained and calm hangout nestled amidst the hustle and bustle of city life.

Dilli Haat INA remains as one of the most secured places for visitors. 25 food stalls leave no stone unturned in serving the diverse food of a vast nation. Come and experience diversity in its true sense, Dilli Haat INA welcomes all.
