Red Fort is one of the historical monuments located in Delhi. This monument gets its name from the red coloured sandstone used for construction by the Mughals. This fort is situated in the centre of the city and used as a ceremonial spot for the Royals. Even today, the place used for political and national ceremonies. Red fort is not just about the outer beauty of the fortified wall. You can find many exciting attractions inside the fort like palaces, halls, museums and others.
I used to visit Red Fort, and the reason was the same just saw to ‘Meena Bazaar’. But nowadays ‘Meena Bazaar’ is changed.
There are some pictures of presently known as ‘Chhatta Chowk Bazaar’ or ‘Meena Bazaar’, this bazaar earlier was known as ‘Bazaar-i-Musaqqaf’. The Lahori-gate entrance of the Red fort leads into the shadows of this ‘ Covered Market’ or ‘Vaulted Arcade’. Shah Jahan perhaps impelled by political reasons to position Chhatta Bazaar at the principal ceremonial entrance to the fort, as an appropriate place to exhibit the Mughal Empire’s growing wealth, skills and abilities.
This was one of the first covered bazaars of the 17th century.
This place is my personal favourite, there are lots of small things made of wood. This woodcraft attracts so much. This also presents India’s skill in ‘Nakkashi‘.
Kathputli is a string puppet theatre, native to Rajasthan, India, and is the most popular form of Indian puppetry.
I love these tiny things, The value of our culture and craft, which presents our India. They excite me so much also the same to the visitors. Now they all are accessible in other places in Delhi like ‘DILLI HAAT’, ‘JANPATH’, ‘PALIKA BAZAAR’, ‘JAMA MASJID’. If you want to shop It’s easily accessible.
