We visited Chandni Chowk on a Sunday so it was relatively quiet, with most of the shops closed. We had guides with us who walked us through the maze of alleys, pointing out where different items could be bought. There were some street stalls open and we bought some freshly baked biscuits (shortbread?) which were soooo delicious! We also walked... More

In India, I really enjoyed walking around the Chandni chowk. Actually it is a good place for food, shopping or even photography. For those who are not in a rush, I highly recommend this area.

his is closest you'll get to getting up close and personal with day to day life in the old town bazaar. Got completely lost but found lovely little backstreets in the process. Very definite areas selling everything from saris to sewing accessories, books to sewing machines - sadly we lost the spice market and it was closed when we returned... More

We took a tuk tuk from the entrance to Jama Masjid. This was certainly the easiest way to navigate through the hustle and bustle of Chandni Chowk. We were in fact reluctant to go in a tuk tuk as our preference would have been to be part of the melee. The advantage was that we found all the areas of... More

I was disappointed during my recent trip to find that the majority of the stores are closed on Sunday. The area is still worth going to and we did go to the spice market. I just wish I had known before I went to India that the shops were closed on Sunday because i would have restructured my trip to... More

The sparkling attraction of old Delhi, chand ni chowk is a place of street food lover, bargain shopper and nostalgia lovers. Amid hustle and bustle, parathewali gali attracts indian lovers. Garment shop for affordable shopping of Indian fashion and a peek into old monuments this place a must during Delhi tour.
