A tough place to be. But the food joints and shopping arcade will cover up you stress. Surprised to see such a place in the center of the capital city.

Sunday markets includes Dress materials, large variety of shoes, books (pirated as well as new). You will se college students coming in group to get their course materials.

A very crowded place. A typical old delhi. Lots of places to shop for but definitely have to move around a lot. Too congested for a new comer and better watch your pockets.
