The history of Khan Market in New Delhi is very colourful and interesting. The city dwellers know Khan Market to be one of the most expensive place to live and shop in the city which is absolutely true till date. The market was named in honour of Khan Abdul Jabbar Khan who helped the nation during the trying times of partition. The first traders who came to Delhi after the partition set up shops here and reside in few flats above the shops but slowly after a few decade they sold and moved on, converting the flats into another row of retail shops. As times moved on these humble shops took the face of glittery and posh residents and converted themselves into the sophisticated avatar of themselves. The double story Khan Market raised from its humble origins and entered into the posh world of fashion and gastronomy.
