History

It derives its name from the Persian Dur-e be-baha, which translates as "unparalleled pearl", while suffix Kalan means big. There was also a smaller street near by, known as Dariba Khurd or Chhota Dariba, both Khurd and Chhota meaning "small"; it is now known as Kinari Bazaar. This is in reference to its history as a popular market for precious stones and gold and silver jewelry, especially under the reign of the 17th-century Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. The street witnessed the bloody massacre of Delhi in March 1739, ordered by the Persian invader Nadir Shah, when hundreds of innocent civilians and soldiers were killed and the gold shops were looted.

Overview

Today, most of the shops in Dariba Kalan trade in costume jewellery. Some also deal in authentic ittar, a special variety of perfume. These stores claim to date back to the early 19th century.
