this is a busy place. not really an attraction as such, but a functioning retail zone. Don't go on friday midday, as many shops are closed for prayers. Fab place. Find those samosas...they're the best!

We went for an authentic Indian experience and it really was a jumble of mostly junk. Time is better spent elsewhere.

A real taste of India! Here you will find anything Indian and you feel as if you are actually visiting India.

Bright and colourful, everything from designer shoes to bryani pots, you will find it here. Love browsing the fabric shops, or grabbing a delicious homemade samoosa at one of the local cafes. Its nice to go to such a bustling part of the city, but not be haggled or pestered. You are welcome to try a little bargaining, but this is not particularly common place.
Have good walking shoes on, and be prepared to spend some time there - there is so much to do and bargains to find!
