Daryaganj VI: West of Ansari Road

The residential neighborhoods in this area are interspersed with institutional buildings and compounds. Even with this difference, this area follows the same pattern as the area south of it, with the western portion laid out in a planned grid manner, while the eastern portion has a more organic layout.
