Sowcarpet - a bustling locality of the southern metropolis of Chennai is one among the oldest neighborhoods of the urban center. Dotted with heritage buildings, narrow lanes and wholesale marketplaces, Sowcarpet demonstrates the old world charm to the local people and visitors alike.
For Chennaites or for Tamilians, the name Sowcarpet reminds of a few scenes which usually range from North Indians (especially, Marwaris) to sweet stalls, crowded bazaars to chaat varieties and so on.
Sowcarpet is home to a large North Indian community in Chennai. The tale goes back to at least fifty years, as a fairly large population of the Marwari business community and shylocks from Rajasthan, shifted to Sowcarpet to dig into the locality's business prospects.
As a matter of fact, Sowcarpet turns a 'mini North India' during the festivals as the warm people of Sowcarpet come together and make the locality glow with ghagra-cholis, mehendi, glass bangles, color powders (during Holi) and so on.
Bustling with commercial activities throughout the year, Sowcarpet matches the charm of the 'ever-busy' Chandni Chowk in Delhi.
