Walk down this street with care. Motorbikes, tuktuks and cows all vie for the small space. It is a good microcosm of Indian life. Keep looking down or you will need a shoe cleaner

Nothing special about this street, usual shops selling stuff which we see in pretty much every old city. Very congested, constant blaring of horns, stray animals. Nothing special at all.

Following centuries of trading this traditional market sells the fruit, vegetables and goods required by the inhabitants of the fort. As such many vows wander the area feeding on the scraps left by the traders and customers.
