RED FORT CHHATTA CHOWK BAZAAR

Image ID: 199735107

Caption : Paintings on the arches of Chhatta Bazaar being restored by ASI at the Red Fort in Delhi on April 26, 2018. The Chhatta Chowk is located behind the Lahori Gate and is set within an arched passage. It is lined with two-story flats that contain 32 arched bays serving as shops. During Shah Jahan's reign, the Chhatta Chowk was very exclusive, specializing in trading goods such as silk, brocades, velvet, gold, silverware, jewellery, gems and precious stones, catering to the luxurious tastes of imperial households. Its history dates back to the 17th century. It was inspired by another marketplace which Shah Jahan had seen in Peshawar in 1646. The arches were walled up in the 20th century and the passage thus lost its original appearance. The ceiling was also originally painted in colours which is being restored by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Photo: V.V. Krishnan
