This is a great area to take a rickshaw ride through. The streets are narrow and without a guide you could get lost. Ther are stores of all varieties--jewelry, silks, rugs, wedding dresses, silk fabrics, and everything else you can think,of. The traffic is never end Sing.

Same old junk you can buy just about anywhere else in Delhi, cheaper. Not one was selling drinks, the only thing I wanted to buy in 47C heat!
