A covered bazaar was unheard-of in India during the rule of Emperor Shah Jahan. The Emperor instructed Mukarmat Khan to build a covered market in Delhi. Shah Jahan was greatly impressed with the design of the covered market since it was appropriate for the hot climate of Delhi. This covered market is presently known as 'Chhatta Chowk Bazaar' or the 'Meena Bazaar', and was earlier known as the 'Bazaar-i-Musaqqaf' or the market with roof.

It is believed that some 300 years ago, this bazaar accommodated the luxury trade of the royally household, and traded rugs, exquisite carpets, jajams and shatranjis, quilts, takia-namads, shahtus, pashmina shawls, brocaded costumes, velvet pardahs etc.
