Known for its chikan clothes factory, this market again gives the feeling of being in Chandni Chowk or Chawri bazar in Delhi. Narrow lanes, crowded, it could be an overdose of old city. Its full of unorganized parking, chai tapirs, chaat stalls and some random office buildings. You can take a casual stroll or try shopping for some local commodities, only if your bargaining skills are good. Most of the shops are of winter wear or chikan in the main market. known for its tunday kababi shop. Dastarkhan is also nearby must try for shami and galouti kebabs amongst other chicken dishes.More » « Less
