With just a few day left for Eid ul fitr, the markets in Kashmir are getting more congested and the case is no different for the one and only, the oldest and the cheapest markets of the valley- the Jamia market that includes the Shaheed-e-milat- market build inside.
This market marks the presence of downtown in its own propitious way. The market surrounds the world famous Jamia masjid of srinagar,( this masjid was built by Sultan Sikander, its foundation being laid in A.D. 1398, the masjid was later expanded by his successor and son, Zain-ul-Abideen).
With the end of this month of ramadhan, the crowd at Jamia market swells. And unlike other markets, whatever be the occasion, the prices don’t touch the skies. For the female counter parts of the society this market is the boon in itself, from cosmetics to a wide variety of clothes to trinkets to shoes to kitchenware to every other household item, you can find everything in this market and that too for a fair price. The market also does provide a wide range for the males.
Have a look at the photographs and if you are planning to go for shopping this eid, don’t forget to take a round through Jamia Market, you can thank us later.
