Connaught Place

Connaught Place is, I guess, the commercial heart of New Delhi. Old Delhi has more atmospheric bazaars. And New Delhi has a fair number of weird (to our eyes) shopping enclaves that are sort of a cross between high-street shopping and a strip mall. But the Connaught area, a series of concentric circles and radial avenues emanating from a circular park, is the main, central shopping district with multiple blocks of streets lined with shops and such. And yet, it's not much to look at.
