Jwala Heri market is one of the busiest markets in Delhi and also one of the most labyrinthine. This is the place that you must turn to for all your apparel needs and sister concerns. This market is one of those typically unorganised Delhi shopping hubs, where you have to look closely for what you need, because there’s just too much to choose from! This market is best explored with time on ones hands and money in ones pocket. You can find more information about Jwala Heri here. The nearest metro station is Paschim Vihar West.
