A Photowalk through the Lanes of Juni Indore

About the walk

India’s cleanest city, Indore, was first named Indreshwar, after the Indreshwar Temple in the city, which was believed to have been named on its original patron - the Rashtrakuta King Indra III of the 10th century. It was this temple that gave Indore her name, and the Juni Indur came around. The Zamindars of village Kampel (about 10 km SE) observed an opportunity of flourishing trade. With more zamindars investing in the city, it saw an increase in trade and commerce and thus the city expanded as a trade centre.

On this photo-walk, we will experience and explore some of those lanes, which still resonate with the beautiful energy of the trade of the bygone days. We head out on the road and capture the lanes such as Cloth Market, Bartan Bazaar and Marothiya Bazaar, so to say to witness the unseen hustle-bustle of the market with a theme and some history to be heard and later captured. So get yourself up with your camera or a smartphone and join us on this unique photo-walk. 

This guided tour is free and is a physical tour.
