Haridwar is mainly a pilgrim destination but it is possible to find something to take back for friends and family. For the faithful, you can take the small containers of Ganga jal in sealed brass containers or tins. There are of course the usual shops selling handicrafts, cheap jewellery as well as woolen shawls. Religious books, icons, Rudraksha beads, precious stones are also available. Try Bara Bazaar, Moti Bazaar and Jwalapur, if you like to browse through a lot of shops before buying.
