Bottle Street (BOTAL GALI) Of Karachi.

Image

Botal Gali (Bottle Street), a narrow street tucked away in the heart of downtown Karachi.

 

Before Partition, the name of a gali, the Urdu word for street, became associated with a variety of professions, because of a particular group of traders who opened up shops there. Places like Botal Gali (Bottle Street), Mochi Gali (Cobbler Street) and Sarafa Gali (Jewellery Street) are cases in point. Although Dupatta Gali on Tariq Road and Banaras Colony in KorangiTownship came about later, it basically follows the same trend.
