Shahpur Jat as the name suggests is one of the coolest street shopping markets around the South Delhi area. Its outskirts are covered by small hamlets that happily co-exist with the urban population that covers the internal region. Let us brief you a little about the market before we actually tell you, how vibrant is the place to be on weekends.
Shahpur Jat is an urban village in South Delhi, located near the suburbs of Hauz Khas Village and in one of the ancient capitals of Delhi, Siri Fort. Shahpur Jat gets its initials from the Jat community. When the Jats saw the potential of the fertile lands of Shahpur village they moved to the area and gave the area their community’s name. It is basically a very old traditional area inhabited by havelis. With the rise of start-up culture in India, Shahpur Jat has attracted a lot of youngsters to set-up their own co-work places.
Due to the exceptionally low rents in the area, and its proximity to the premier institutes like Jawaharlal Nehru University Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and National Institute of Fashion Technology, Shahpur Jat has attracted many startups and boutiques like KleverKid, Avanti, Holidify, Eckovation, Consure Medical, etc.
