Shopping: 

Meena Bazar: The King and his fleet of queens would often visit the common areas across the city outside the fort. However, it was almost impossible for the royals to come out in public and satiate the craving for shopping (except under disguise). A special market was created for the queens to indulge in shopping and leisurely activities. The market aptly called Meena Bazar (Market Fair) used to be set up every time the royals demanded a visit. The name Meena Bazar is being used to convey a Grand Festive Market even today. It is, however no known, whether the shopkeepers ever dared to quote a price for their wares when the imperials were out for shopping.
