This place was hectic! Loads of people walking about, homeless people sleeping, beggars begging, market stalls selling, auto and cycle-rickshaws touting and cars and motor cycles driving all over the place and honking their horns! It was pretty fascinating, but being our first tourist visit, it was a little overwhelming. Everyone coming to De.hi should go here, but be prepared!... More

The place is still commercially significant in Delhi for its different bazaars.The place is congested but has a unique character.You may join a walking tour if you want to know the interesting details of the place and the history behind the names.

Thank god I came here with a friend who's Indian. It's an assault on every single one of the senses and you won't be able to stay for more than a few hours before diving off into a little cafe/eatery for some rest bite. It's busy and hot and hectic and smelly and loud and dusty... Just to name a... More

A congested place, but thanks to Delhi Metro, you can easily reach there without a fuss and no tensions of parking. Old shops, known for wholesale prices. You can find almost everything here, from clothes to household items to gift items, books, electronics, lights and shades, to sanitary items. Also famous for Parathe wali gali and Karims.
