At Delhi’s Daryaganj, bibliophiles can weigh their options — literally

Daryaganj may no longer be home to the iconic Sunday Book Bazar, a 50-year old popular weekly books market that was shifted to the nearby Mahila Haat about two years ago, but over a dozen permanent bookshops have come up in the central Delhi market in the past few years.

Most of these bookshops in Daryaganj used to be garment and shoe shops until a few years back. Today, there is a huge demand for space for bookshops in the market, and some of those looking to open bookshops are those who used to sell books in the Sunday Book Bazar. (Amal KS/HT Photo)
