No doubt all of you must know about this place at thandi khui which is very famous for its khoya barfi and other products. The founder of this shop was Lt. Shree Khazan Chand ji who started this shop and named it as ‘Old is Gold’ in 1953.
Tourmyj&k team after talking with Ajay Kumar(grandson of Lt. Shree Khazan Chand) we come to know certain things which we are going to share with all of you.
At this place you will see a well, the well is of the time when there were no vehicles and all. No one really know’s who established the well. Ajay kumar told us there was a 100 years old widow who spended her whole life in serving water from the well to the people there, her name was ‘Jantyi Devi’.
The main attraction of this famous shop is the Blind man named ‘Bishan Das’ who used to make and serve tea with matthi(Indian snack which is served with tea). You will surely get amazed by seeing him, he can’t see but still he can make a perfect cup of tea which you will love to have. He also serves the famous khoya barfi there. Also he will take the money from you according to the products you have taken and then return you the money left, isn’t this amazing?
They have a workshop behind the shop where they make the matthi and prepare their other products, ‘Thirth Ram’ son of Lt. Shree Khazan Chand used to give instructions to the workers in the workshop. The workers at their place are mostly their family members like cousins and all.
You can see the workers there making the khoya barfi in front of you and the beautiful smell of the the barfi will attract you. They daily sell around 30-60 kgs of khoya barfi. They also serve other snacks like Samosa, pakode, besan ki barfi etc. The whole material which is used to make their products is produced by them only.
