New Delhi: With the Janmashtami fever gripping the market this festive season, the desire to dress one’s own Ladoo Gopal is pulling huge crowds to religious markets.

The sprawling market of ‘poshaks’ (dresses for idols) is catching up with the latest fashion in trend.

One can choose from a wide variety of poshaks available in net, silk, gota, lace embellished with peacock wings, pearls, studs and even with gold and silver work. Those ready to spend whole-heartedly for the Lord’s birthday can also go for customized dresses made in flowers or give an order for a self design.

Looking for poshak shops in Delhi?

Gift some nice dresses to Lord Krishna on his birthday. You can go shopping to Sadar Bazar, Chandni Chowk, Lal Quarter, Laxmi Nagar, Gandhinagar for poshaks and accessories including mukut, neckpiece, tilak, stone eyes, bangles, bansi and peacock wings. The articles come in variable price range and a very wide variety of designs and patterns.

The poshaks and accessories are available in different sizes for the idols of Lord Krishna.

Cradle for the deity

You can also welcome the newborn Krishna with a ‘jhoola’ (cradle) available in steel, silver as well as gold plating. The costlier versions include those encrusted with diamonds and pearls available at jewellery shops.
