St Kilda's original hippie store has hardly changed in its last 26 years. Nor does it need to – while Chakra's Indian sarongs, fisherman's pants and silk scarves cater to tourists and shoppers, the shop also maintains a strong spiritual side that has garnered a loyal base of customers. Books with titles like What Would Buddha Do? line Chakra's shelves, and extensive explanations accompany the collection of healing stones. No matter what you reason to visit is, don't go past the glittering shelves of impressive silver Indian jewellery.
