place=locality and place=intersection both seem to be good to label
chowks, as chowks have some expanded meaning:

  * most importantly "chowks" denote intersection
  * but they chowks are not merely limited to intersection, and they
    spread out, so as the locality is also named after the chowk.

p.s: @prabhas: the link is not working.
