Kirti Nagar (Hindi: कीर्ति नगर, Punjabi: ਕਿਰਤੀ ਨਗਰ, Urdu: کرتی نگار) is an area of West Delhi, India. Part of the Punjabi Bagh subzone of West Delhi, it primarily a residential colony. Kirti Nagar is home to Asia's largest furniture market housing showrooms of multi-national home remodelling and fittings companies, the most reputed interior design boutiques, imported kitchen and bath brands as well as traditional carpentry furniture makers.

Considered one of the upmarket areas in Delhi, the twin localities of Mansarovar Garden and Kirti Nagar are indeed one of the posh areas in West Delhi. The colony mostly consists of private houses and so called "Kothis", housing rich Sikh businessmen and people who migrated from Pakistan after partition constitute a significant part of the population.

The adjacent neighborhood of Rajouri Garden is a popular market, comprising the Main Market, Nehru Market and many western style indoor shopping malls including TDI Mall, Moments mall, TDI Paragon Mall, Shoppers Stop, City Square, West Gate Mall, and Paradise Mall. Together, this area is now the largest single locality shopping conglomeration in Delhi ahead of South Delhi.

Kirti Nagar is well connected to the Delhi Metro via the Kirti Nagar (Delhi Metro) station, which is one of the few Metro stations with a feeder bus service. Mansarovar Garden and Kirti Nagar localities are adjacent to the Ring Road on one side and Patel Road on the other which connect to Dhaula Kuan and the Central Business District of Connaught Place, respectively.

Surrounding areas to Kirti Nagar are Mansarovar Garden, Rajouri Garden, Punjabi Bagh, and Patel Nagar.
