Mumbai's Jewelry Market
The crowded sweatshops at Zaveri Bazaar are some of the oldest buildings in Mumbai. Built in the 19th century, these dilapidated buildings have witnessed the changing times, people and surroundings. However, the bazaar still manages to retain its old-world Victorian charm. Many of the buildings were designed according to Victorian-Gothic styles, which are still visible in flaky bits and pieces today. The main jewelry buildings are surrounded by local food waters and a restaurant or two.
