ff you have been to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, this is much larger. Long distances to get from the stalls of one product to another. We are in our 70's and had a wonderful wild ride in a bicycle rickshaw but didn't stop to look or buy. It was FUN!! If you found this review helpful, please note below.... More

This is a real ancient India. One must visit Gauri Shankar Temple there. The temple has an 800 year old brown Lingam. This place is very sacred and one should must visit there. Later we can see some foods at Natraj (Dahi Bhalla), Allo-Puri- at Shiv Misthan Bhandar or Chaina ram, we can have some lassi at Gandhi gali or... More

This was my favourite place in India, an experience to walk along the street with all the people and shops. To me this was India.

Apart from Parathewali Gali, there was not much that I enjoyed here. I found some good deals in a market on camera gear but that was not the reason I was there. I tried gol guppas and a few other things and felt very disappointed. Parathewali gali was worth it, though. They were deep fried parathas and while I would... More

We had an option to take a rickshaw ride through the streets of this market but respectfully declined. It's a pretty hard-core place and we just weren't in the mood to be stared at. We did drive through on our way back and to the mosque.

We took a quick rickshaw thru this 300 year old market. This place was packed elbow to elbow with people and activity. We didn't go thru very much of it because Our ( guide ) just kept telling us it was not safe to wander here by ourselves late at night. If you are adventurous give it a try, it... More

This is the heart, the very epoch of life, business and activity! This place is aBUZZZZ! So much to choose from to eat, so much to choose for clothing, so much to choose for reading. and so many people, cycle rickshaws, auto rickshaws, bikes, scooters all wanting to eject on the narrow roads at the same time. This is teaming... More

Took a cycle rickshaw through Chandni Chowk and the many side streets. This was an unforgettable experience - to get the vibe of the area without getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the area. The rickshaw "drivers" we're excellent as guides. It was truly awesome
