"Common Ground in Amer Fort"

'Jaleb Chowk' is a common term used for any open ground that was earlier used for public gatherings when the reigning king wished to address his kingdom. An open space that served as an assembly ground for soldiers, Jalebi Chowk is the first stop in Amer Fort complex, if one entered from the Surajpol gate. Back in the day, this ground was surrounded by horse stables. Near the Jalebi Chowk is the Bali Sthal which was the sacrificial ground where human and animal slaughter was rampant under the pretext of religious offering. Today, this chowk is the concluding point of the elephant ride within Amer Fort. And horse stables that surrounded the chowk have been converted into souvenir shops.
