Dariba Kalan is a street in Delhi known for its markets. This was a market that sold precious stones, gems, gold and silver jewellery. Though now the market is known for its silver and costume jewellery, the market is still known as the Jeweller’s Street. Apart from the shops that sell jewellery, there are also shops that sell authentic attar, a type of perfume.
Dariba Kalan which literally means the “Street of the Incomparable Pearl”, is located in Chandni Chowk. The market has come into prominence at the time of Emperor Shah Jahan’s rule.
Apart from this street, there are also some shopping destinations that are worth exploring. Some of them are the Sarojini Nagar, Khari Baoli, Pragati maidan, Lajpat Nagar and the Khan Market.
