Karol Bagh

The Gaffar market is a labyrinth that almost equals Chandini Chowk. Just as much as the chowk is populated with the descendants of the Mughals and preserves that cultural identity, the areas in Karol Bagh are populated and settled by the Pakistani Punjabis who came over after the partition. The businesses are all run by them, and are flourishing. You can visit Ajmal Khan Road for its weekly Haat on Mondays to get some nice bargains. Lots of things for everyone at this market.
