Dariba Kalan

Street of the Incomparable Pearl', Dariba Kalan. The street derives its name from a Persian phrase 'Dur e be baha', meaning 'pearl without compare' because since the period of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, the street used to be the popular market of precious stones, gems, gold and silver jewelery. Till today it is known as jewelers' street although most of shops in the street now deal in silver and costume jewelery. It is a very good market for purchasing new or old silver jewelry, because of the wide choice available.
