This market is one of the most ancient markets in the country. This was set up as early as 17th century by the great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan. The design of the market was given by his daughter, Jahan Ara. During the early days, these markets had canal separators which aggravated their beauty during moonlight, however, now these canals are not being operational. This is one of Indias biggest whole sale markets. This market is found right at the center of the walled city and runs from Lahore Gate to Fatehpuri Masjid. A canal was constructed during the early days during the middle of this area and was providing water to the surrounding areas.
