    One of the specialities of Raghunath Bazaar is Pashmina Shawl which is decorative, good in quality and not overly expensive. These shawls are woven by the finest of Cashmere wool, dyed in vibrant colours and designed with precision. The intricate embroidery on this fabric is a work of excellent artistry.
