We begin with a walk through Bazaar Ram Bagh, where you'll see grocery shops selling food grains, pulses, jaggery, cooking oils and other local products. There is a narrow lane here where seasonal vegetables and numerous varieties of delicious pickles are available.

After exploring this area on foot, we'll hail a local rickshaw and go on a ride through the scrap metal market, fish market, and Hall bazaar, past the Town Hall and the Gurudwara Saragarhi.

Leaving the rickshaw behind, we'll continue on foot to Qila Ahluwalia, the remains of a small fortress, which now contains homes of wealthy merchants. The cloth market in this area offers a dazzling range of fabrics, and the streets are busy with customers and porters loading and unloading goods. We'll stop at Jalebiwala Chowk to taste their mouth-watering jalebis.

We'll visit some akharas ( resting places for spiritual ascetics ) and see the Chuda Bazaar ( Bangle Market ) , where brides come to shop for red and white bridal bangles. We will see Darshan Deori, a memorial to the spot from where the Gurus Arjun and Hargobind would view the Golden Temple, and the Bartan Bazaar ( Utensils Market ) .

We'll walk past the Baba Bohar, a centuries-old sacred banyan tree right in the middle of the Old City's narrow streets. A small shrine has been built around the base of the tree itself, and all the surrounding houses have been built very carefully to allow for the tree. Guru Bazaar is a dazzling jewellery market, with many designs on display. We'll also see Thakurdwara Dariana Mal, with ornate carvings based on Hindu mythology, which contains shrines to Lord Krishna.

From here, we will take a rickshaw again, and exit the market area. We can drop you either at the Golden Temple, or back at the Ramada Hotel.
