This is one of the oldest market dating back to Mughal Empire and is kind of synonym to Delhi…..this market attracts buyers as well as shoppers looking for cheap deals (buying in bulk) from all over Delhi actually India. They say you can find anything in this market; you just got to know the right place. One can get medicines,... More

Although Chandni Chowk is chaotic and crowded at all times,it is a place where Delhites go to do their gift/ trousseau packaging before a wedding in the family. The Shop O.P Jawaharlal is the most famous shop for buying wedding lehangas. shopkhoj.com

Yes it's crazy but definitely worth a visit or two. Lots of touts and rickshaws at the red fort end will try to sweep you away by telling you how unsafe it is to walk these streets alone - its all a bit of a scam. Watch your belongings like everywhere else and you'll be fine. A rickshaw ride is... More

If you want to experience authentic Indian culture, this is the place to visit! It is mostly known for its busy crowded streets and cheap products. Beware of pickpockets though!

I fell in love with Chandni Chowk's chaotic and bustling streets and bazaar crammed labyrinth of lanes. Everything you could think to buy and some you wouldn't think of are here. On the roads cars mix with motorbikes, autos, peddle cyclos, bullock carts and people. It bazaars in the back lanes are fascinating and if your as lucky as I... More

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.

Must to visit. This place is absolutely crazy noisy and crowded but if you never were there - you never visited Delhi. You could take riksha (don't forget to bargain) and have "riksha-guided tour" for a couple of hours: local ppl know good places to visit (for example spices market from the roof). Good advise - never travel alone there... More
