Panchkuian Furniture Market is considered as a historical market with iconic status located in the heart of the India’s capital city, Delhi. This is one of the oldest markets of the city and there are different theories and stories related to its establishment. It is believed that Panchkuian Market was established in the post-independence era while some people say this market came into existence just after the India-Pak separation. Initially, this market was known for selling a variety of items but later in 1960, as the presence of carpenters and artisans increased in the market, it turned into a specialized furniture market only. But few years back, when Delhi metro started functioning in the capital, the furniture traders of this market were forced to move to a commercial complex in the Gole Market. Now, the old Panchkuian furniture Market has been relocated in a multi-story commercial complex occupying four floors having around 200 shops in Gole Market adjoining to the Cannaught Place. However, it is still known for its old charm and name. RK Ashram is the nearest Metro station to access this market.
