Also known as the Chatta Chowk Bazaar, the Meena Bazaar is one of the most popular and oldest markets in Delhi. In the time of Shah Jahan the idea of a covered market was an alien concept and the Meena Bazaar emerged as the first covered market of its time, the roof of which was constructed with exquisite inlay work known as “ladau”. In the olden times the Meena Bazaar would sell elegant rugs and carpets, quilts, pashmina shawls, silks and woolens among others. The market also stocked gold and silver, exotic perfumes and spices like saffron.

Considering its historic significance, today the Meena Bazaar is maintained by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) and sells items like souvenirs, eatables and drinks.
