It was built in 1658 AD and located in the congested & forever bustling environs of Old Delhi. After this you will pass through the crowded New Delhi Station to reach Pahar Ganj. Stretching for about a kilometer, it is a bargainer paradise. Chaotic, noisy and dirty, the market is lined with shops full to the brim with books, music, jewelry, bags, clothes, shoes, incense, textiles, wooden statues, and handicrafts.
