It gets going every evening and the seemingly usual road takes a sudden transformation with vendors and shopkeepers bustling on the scene. Sharpen your bargaining skills for the best prices and you walk away with bagsful of exclusive wall hangings, bandhej sarees, chaniyas (long colourful skirts), antique jewelery and more.

The shopping frenzy here is on from 7 pm to well past midnight!
