Everytime, when Holi is around the corner, the entire city takes on a colourful facade. In Lucknow, the spirit and gaiety of the festival envelopes the city. In many areas of Lucknow, markets adorned with all sorts of Holi colours dot the streets, and the sight is truly something to behold.
Excited children run around looking for their favourite water guns, while the youngsters just take in the vibes and a few colours while they're at it. Essentially, Holi markets have something exciting for everyone, and if you're looking for the ultimate Holi markets in town, then you've got to head over to Aminabad, Bhoothnath, Aashiyana and Hazratganj.
Walking down the lanes of Aminabad is always a different experience- you never know what to expect. Here, you'll find shops with everything for the perfect and colourful Holi.
Just a bit ahead of Prakash Ki Kulfi, the roads are peppered with makeshift shops, each selling something new and unique. The most unique, is perhaps all the variety of water guns that one can find. Apart from that, the foodies are going to have a wild time.
Sweet shops take over the market and here, you can buy everything from gujiyas and laddos to Namkeens as well. So, folks, you'd better stock up on sweets and edibles for all the guests who turn up at your place.
Celebrating Holi is something that runs within our blood and if you want to take your celebrations to the next level, go and check out Bhootnath market, which has a slew of unheard Holi peripherals.
The shops here sell coloured smoke bombs, gulal spray cans, and best of all, organic colours as well. At this market, you can really let go of yourself and even go ahead and get some funky hats, caps, glasses and whatnot, to make you stand out amidst all the colour. We simply loved all the variety that this market had.
If you're still not satisfied, then you can check out holi markets in other places in Lucknow such as Aashiyana, Charbagh, Hazratganj, and more. Each of these markets perfectly encapsulate the spirit of the festival of colours and a trip to any one of them will get you right into the celebratory groove of the festival.
