Chaura Bazar Stands Apart by its Name (Now it is known as Cchhorra Bazar)
Chaura Bazaar, a place where people come for shopping from far off places are facing problem to go through the market. Encroachments on both sides of the road creates a lot of problem for people to pass through the market. Inspite of strict actions taken by Municipal Corporation Ludhiana officials number of times, the roadside encroachments are set back few days after such action is taken by MCL.
Believed to be 100 years old, the bazar stands to be apart by its name “Chaura bazar”.
Reaching Chaura Bazaar has become a major problem today. At sometime, the hi-end shops were located in Chaura Bazar but due to congestion these shops shifted to Ghumar Mandi, Mall Road and various other malls in the city.
On Sundays, when the shops are closed, there is Sunday market which remains favorite haunt of the people. But due to roadside vendors and other encroachments the bazaar is fully congested.
