Also known as Mogul Street, the lower block is a well-known place to buy and sell gemstones, where you can find huddles of men holding red stones up to the morning light. Do make sure you know what you are buying though! You can also find some gold jewellery shops.
The middle block is the place to buy glasses (frames and lenses) and to see an optician. And the upper block has more opticians and many medical clinics and laboratories, as well as places to have your signboard made, if you should wish to have your name in lights. And there is (of course!) some beautiful architecture.
