Dont even enter there, if you hate bad hawkers, dirty roads and cheaters.

Only reason to visit there should be to get cheated.

Actuall called Sahukar Pet (Land of Businessmen), this place is huge market of different spices and grains run by Rajasthani and Marwari shopkeepers. This place is a small part of Rajasthan in south India where people from all over India come to buy the best quality of spices (even from Rajasthan). This is not a place for hang out may be, but its a shopper's paradise for everyone.

Sowcarpet in Parrys , the centre for Sahukar or Sowcars or Merchants. The whole sale market for textile and everything else. Each lane has a specialisation in one thing. Better to consult someone who has already been there. Otherwise it is like a maze.

Tip - parking is difficult, try getting a cab or auto.

This is place where you can get any thing and everything that you want at a cheapest price in the city. The place looks shady and dirty but you can get anything from plastic products, stationary and general products at a low cost. Here there are 2 profound shops which needs to be visited by myself are Agarwal Sweets and a tiny shop next to Prakash Bhavan for their spl pakoda and pikhas (a spicy snack similar to kurkure)
