For four days in New Delhi, I kept looking for an area like this, and finally found it on the internet on my last day, which, unfortunately, was a Sunday. Most everything is closed on Sundays, except for the Muslim market. Still, it is bustling and gives you a real sense of India in its narrow streets and the chaos... More

This is a place just as I have described in my heading - a very dirty, over-populated but extremely interesting. This place is near Red Fort and you can see an eclectic mixture of Jains,Sikhs,Muslims and Hindus going about their daily routine interspersed with tourists from all over the World with their dropped-jaw expression . Shops are plenty and you... More

Chandni Chowk is famous for its food and shopping. One can get a variety of street food here like "aloo chaat", "pani puri" and many more. For girls, this is the best place to shop as the prices are reasonable and you can get a variety of products.

I did a night tour of Chandni Chowk street food with a guide from Seek Sherpa. I was rather disappointed in the food that we had in that, first of all, the appearance of the establishments was dirty both inside and out and then the food items were not that interesting to me. For example, I thought I loved Aloo... More

I've visited this several times. The reasons for being there might be very different each time, like; purchasing books from Nayi Sadak, Shopping of traditional clothes, experiencing old time charm of Delhi and so on. But, one thing that always pinched me to go there is the food available there, be it paranthe, jalebi, rabri, guavas, tikki, lemon soda or... More

Likes: 1. Chandni Chowk's speciality is the variety of its markets and their Indian-ness: from authentic Indian food, delicacies and sweets of more than 1,000 kinds, to sarees with chikan and zari work. There are many narrow lanes with shops selling books, clothing, shoes and leather goods, electronic and consumer goods and whatnot. The area, even more so than the... More

This place in Delhi is one of the places I always love to visit. It takes me back to the Mughal era. There are several heritage buildings. Once, it was a glorious place in Delhi about 200 years back. It is one the places which has biggest wholesale markets in Asia for almost everything. I always take foreign visitors to... More
