(4.2/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Karol Bagh, also spelled as Qarol Bagh, is a mixed residential-cum-commercial neighbourhood in Delhi, India, known for its shopping streets, like the Ghaffar Market and Ajmal Khan Road. It is one of the three administrative subdivisions, of the Central Delhi district, of the National Capital Territory of Delhi, with the other two being, Darya Ganj and Paharganj.It was also home to the Karol Bagh Lok Sabha constituency till it was abolished in 2008, now it is a Legislative Assembly of Delhi segment of the New Delhi constituency.Noted residential places in Karol Bagh are W.E.A, Beadon Pura, Reghar Pura, Dev Nagar, and Bapa Nagar.A wholesale garment market known as Tank Road Market came into existence with few shopkeepers in the end of the 1980s.HistoryIn the 1920s, residents of villages like Madhoganj, Jaisingh Pura, and Raja ka Bazaar evacuated to build Connaught Place and nearby areas, were relocated in Karol Bagh to the West, then a rocky area populated by trees and wild bushes.The area was primarily residential with a large Muslim population until the exodus of many Muslims to Pakistan and an influx of refugees from West Punjab and Sindh after partition in 1947, many of whom were traders. There remains a sizeable Marathi, Tamil-speaking population. Karol Bagh is also home to a large Bengali community, and hosts one of the oldest Durga Puja in the city, though their numbers have increased many folds since late 1990's, most of which are employed in jewelery manufacureing.
