GUNDREE BAZAAR

Gorkhali Online Bazaar

Gundree Bazaar comes from two words – Gundree (Nepali) means a blanket made of rough wool. Bazaar (Persian) means a market place. Gundree was the quintessential all purpose cloth for the Gorkhas. They used it as a bedsheet which could be laid over the bed during summer and worn over during winter. Interestingly, the Gorkhas flocked to small towns and cross-roads during the specific day of the week to sell their products. These were known as Haat Bazaars. Many such places developed into small towns and came to be known by the day of the week in which the Haat Bazaars were organised such as Sombaria, (Monday) Manglabaria (Tuesday) etc.

Gundree Bazaar is at the core of the Gorkha Heritage. The Himalayan Beacon besides engaging in its Journalistic duties have now setup an online shopping network called Gundree Bazaar within its network (www.thehimalayanbeacon.com) to promote authors, artisans, entrepreneurs and everyone else from Darjeeling Hills and Sikkim who wants to place their products before the world.
