A crowded over whelming market only accessible by foot. One can buy anything here from stationary to clothes , wedding attires to wedding jewellry. The famous paranthe wali gali is a must visit if you love food. One of the most diverse markets in Delhi.

Chandni chowk is a throbbing slice of the real India,unspoilt (if that be the appropriate word) by any "western" influence. The folks there are authentically Indian and seem happy about that.The shops are such that are seen across the country,as are the customers and the shopkeepers. Eateries abound,with food delicious despite the simplicity of surroundings. It could have been a... More

Chandni Chowk or Delhi 6 is a place where you can buy everything from stationery to wedding jewellery; from trophies to wash basins and much more at a fraction of the price you get at other places. It is one of the most diverse markets in not only Delhi but the world. The food, well the food ! I can... More

Chandni Chowk is extremely crowded. You just need to stand somewhere and you will be carried along by the flow of traffic. The sights are mind tingling. Embroidered clothes with golden thread. Roving food stalls. Beware of these if you have a delicate belly. There are clean fast food outlets too. You can see centuries old building in bad conditions... More

I've read a lot of Islamic history, and have heard about the Mughal empire for a long time -- so I was really looking forward to seeing the old city of Delhi, which the Mughals built. Granted, I had heard that the old city is chaotic, messy (even dirty); that it is very much a living place, overcrowded, and not... More

Chandi Chowk is authentic India- (old Delhi) and is a must do experience for any first time visitor to India & Delhi. Markets are fascinating & incredibly cheap- bargain here for more realistic prices. Forget the taxis- the underground metro, although permanently crowded & requiring a fair use of the elbows at times,is the only sensible option in getting to... More
