During the Mughal Era Meena Bazaars, also known as Kuhs Ruz "Day of Joy" were exclusively held for women, while the emperor and a few princes were the only males present.
The Bazaars took 5 to 8 days during the Norouz (New Year) festival. Emperor Humayun was the first to organize them, but Akbar and his successors made them more elaborate. The fair was closed for the public, while the women of the harem, Rajput ladies and the wives and daughters of the noblemen in the court, set up their own stalls to sell cloth, jewellery, handicrafts etc. Only the emperor, princes and some nobles were allowed to enter the bazaar to purchase the goods, which were sold at high prices. The earnings were given for charity.
In India, Meena Bazar, refers also to a bazaar of the famous Qaisarbagh in the city of Lucknow in the Awadh region of the country. This bazaar was enjoyed by the royal ladies living in the Qaisarbagh complex of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah.
And It is also the name of the famous retail store in India selling ethnic women wear like Sarees, Suits and Lehenga. This brand was set up in 1970. Meena Bazzar in Delhi is famous for its beautiful Indian traditional collection.
