Walked along part of Chand Pole Bazar Rd. This market is famous for its artificial jewellery, bright bandhej / bandhani saree and suits, leather juttis, colourful Mojris (footwear), silver and artificial jewellery, gems, lac handmade bangles in vibrant shades, traditional hand block print fabrics, colourful bed sheets and rajais (quilts) etc.

Tiny shops half spilling out into the narrow footpath. Shops were on pavements, mobile carts, street vendors, mega buildings, small ones tucked in corners ... shops galore or shoppers’ paradise … shops, people, cars, buses, rickshaws, autos, cows, dogs and of course the shoppers were everywhere.

It was certainly colourful and cheerful mayhem! It was an experience like no other!

This is a wedding lamp, normally used in the procession.
