THE BEST KITES:
The gol kaap ki patang, which is the kite with an arch made of heated bamboo is considered to be the best. Ask for kites from Bareilly and Muradabad, which specialise in this variety of kites. Also, you should know that the kan kaua or pauna is the biggest size of kites, while the manjholi or adhi are the medium sized kites. Both are considered a good buy.
