Madressa Arcade


"Alleys of Small, Interesting Shops"

The Madressa Arcade can be found in the Indian Quarter. It has a Kiplingesque quality, recalling bazaars of the east. Built in 1927, it is little more than a narrow and winding alley, perfumed by spices and thronged with traders. Here you can buy everything from plastic trinkets to household utensils and Indian music. There are two particularly unusual shops in the arcade: one sells the latest African hits on record, and the other specializes in dried monkey heads and other paraphernalia of African 'magic'. The arcade has entrances on both Queen and Cathedral Streets.
