Temple among the hand pressed paper manufacturers

I found this shrine when I was studiously ignoring the "I love you" touts by diving into a street off the mosque and hoping to find an alley back to the main thoroughfare of Chandni Chowk. I had to backtrack because this was a blind one. The little storefronts were occupied by men using mechanical presses to create colorful sheets of paper. The sheets were then bundled into large stacks, and delivered to the wedding card sellers by quick stepping runners who carried the unwieldy bundles on their heads.
