Meena Bazaar

Meena Bazaar

Nestled between Dariba Kalan and Jama Masjid is Meena Bazaar, one of the most ancient markets of the city. Also known as Chatta Chowk Bazaar, the corridors of this place transport you to the Mughal era Delhi. Retaining the Islamic touch, most shops here sell traditional Muslim garments like the burqas (veils donned by Muslim ladies), traditional embroidered caps for men and pictures of Islamic religious sites.

Maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), this age-old marketplace has some shops selling wedding attires, colourful blankets, shawls and even diaries. A big attraction for tourists are the intricate Mughal era carvings that are still visible on some of its oldest buildings.
