Turkman Gate is located to the southern edge of Shahajahanabad, is named after the Sufi Saint Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani. The Old city’s infrastructure is crumbling under the pressures of a growing population, which has grown manifold since the time of its inception.
The basic requirements of a growing city, like parking spaces/parks do not exist. If a four wheeler enters the neighborhood, it results in chaos and traffic jams. Roads are narrow, as most of the shops and houses have encroached on the main road leading to congestion. There is hardly any greenery as every inch of open space is inhabited. It resembles a concrete jungle.
For muslims, hindouist women and hijras, Turkaman Gate is of the safest areas of Delhi. Turkman Gate is very well connected, as it is centrally located and is close to both ITO metro station and Connaught Place.
From security’s point of view, people feel safe staying together, as it also provides a sense of ‘apna’ culture. Turkman Gate neighborhood’s Muslim population forms a part of the often labeled Jama Masjidghetto. People are not very rich but in India, Muslims are not very rich. Muslims are India’s poorest and worst educated religious group.
