With commencement of beautification project at city’s old Dabbi Bazaar and Sheesh Mahal Bazaar in the coming days, this heritage street will get a complete facelift with uniform look from its entrance towards the market side.

The blueprint to restore pristine glory of these markets is on the finalisation stage. An expert team from the Indian National Trust for Art and Culture Heritage (INTACH) will also visit Sheesh Mahal Bazaar to chalk out further strategy to develop similar facade in these areas. As Dabbi Bazaar is already a heritage street, the entire place will be given a new looking on the heritage pattern.

Punjab Industries and Commerce Minister Sunder Sham Arora, who visited these areas, situated in the heart of city, said, “The Punjab Government will provide sufficient funds for this heritage project once the blueprint is finalised. The beautification project will cover the entrance of Dabbi Bazaar. Entire market has similar facade based on the pattern of other heritage cities like Jaipur and Jodhpur.”

“Both markets will have attractive look and heritage significance,” he said while adding, “The district administration and the Municipal Corporation are working in tandem to start and complete the project within next six months.”

“Dabbi Bazaar and Sheesh Mahal Bazaar are known for wood inlay works and handicraft potential, which will be revived. Tenders of these projects will be floated shortly so that the work on heritage street can be started,” he said.

Attractive gates would be fixed at the entrance of these markets so that daily visitor could see the heritage look of these places, he added. Besides roads will be recarpeted, floor lights and similar sign boards will be installed in markets, he said.
