Mochpura Bazaar, Ludhiana

Ludhiana is primarily known for its woolen products. When you think of woolens, you think of Ludhiana. And what Ludhiana is to the woolen market in the region, Mochpura Bazaar is to Ludhiana. Mochpura happens to be the wool center of not only Ludhiana but also the entire region.

Hundreds of shops sell wool worth crores of rupees in this market daily during the peak season. It is difficult to walk through the market during the peak days. Long rows of woolen bales can be seen lying outside the shops in the market. Mochpura Bazaar is the source of wool and synthetic yarn for the entire middle-rung woollen industry in the state and the region. The roads are too narrow for the reason that the market was set up over a 100 years ago. The rush of people always used to be there even before Partition, but these days it is all crowded. Most of the shopkeepers who were Muslims reportedly fled the city in 1947. The market could not modernize itself and some shops are as old as the market itself.
