If you are a knower of Red Light areas of India, you must have heard about GB Road for sure. Some of you may have visited the place or even if you don’t, you could have gotten to know about the most famous red light area of India from any newspaper or on social media. But have you ever thought about GB Road actually becoming the most famous hub of pr*stitutes in India?
Garstin Bastion Road aka GB Road is a road in Delhi that connects the Ajmeri gate to the Lahori Gate. It is also one of the oldest red light areas in India. GB Road is widely popular for its br*thels. You will find a large number of br*thels where more than 1000 s*x workers offer pr*stitution.
The history of GB Road is related to Mughal rule. It is said that, during Mughal rule, there were five red light areas (known as kothas in common language) in Delhi. During British rule, all the five kothas or red light areas were assembled in one on the road known as GB Road. Which eventually made GB road a multi-level br*thel hub. The GB road now has around 100 br*thels.
But the fact that makes GB Road more unique is that around 100 br*thels operate in just 20 of the total number of the buildings and that too just on the first floor of the buildings. The br*thels open at night when the shops on the ground floor get closed. In 1966, the name of the road was officially changed into Swami Shradhanand Marg, but still it is popular as GB Road.
However, GB road is not only known for its br*thels, but it is also known for its great market of hardware, automobile parts, machinery tools. It is the biggest market for these goods in Delhi. Which means if you saw any of your known guys in GB Road, it doesn’t mean he’s there for some fun…
