The area of Chandni chowk belongs to old delhi. Not in terms of old but in terms of real delhi. The best part of delhi where you can see variety of things like traders, crowd and business centre which are working since so long time back.

We were so exited about this place from what we read before our trip that we made it a "must" to visit.We got there by the metro.Already after leaving the metro station we understood that this is not our favorite site.From the station we had to walk a few hundred meters to get to the main street of Chandni Chowk....

Chandni Chowk is one of the oldest markets in Delhi. It is the only place in Delhi where you can find the wholesale market of possibly all things from stationary, electronics, cameras, garments, books, wedding cards and jewellery etc. The streets of traditional Chandni Chowk are marvellous. Every corner has its own legacy. There are plenty of options to satisfy... More

I went up to Delhi for a little personal travel after a business trip to Mumbai. Chandni Chowk was hands-down one of the top experiences I had in Delhi. You really don't need a guide at all if you're not afraid to have an adventure. I stayed at a hotel in Connaught and took the subway up to Chawri Bazaar.... More

We had one of the best guides ever to tour the insanity known as Chandni Chowk or Old Delhi. His name was Gaurav - so experienced, an expert English speaker and highly knowledgeable of the local scene. We love "off the beaten track" experiences, and taking a cycle-rickshaw through these alleyways and crazy streets is pure pleasure for the senses.... More

A lot has already been said about Chandni Chowk. My recent visit to Delhi took me to this place once again after nearly 15 years. Here are things to do (& not to do as well):- 1) Drink lemon soda (bottle with a ball)...this thing is vanishing but you will find it aplenty at Chandni Chowk. 2) Go to Gurudwara... More

One of the oldest & crowded market or bazaar, famous for traditional snacks or short eats, main dishes & sweets. As well for ethnic dress materials and accessories. One can also see old mansions and guild housing of olden times. (Poorly maintained). Khari Baoli one of the largest spice and dry fruit market is adjacent to this place.
