Chandani Chowk is biggest and oldest market of old Delhi. This bazar was built by Moghul Emeror Shah Jahan in 17th Century. This is one of the largest wholesale market of India also. Well known Jama Masjid is in this area. Here you will found goods of all kind and good street food also. However it is crowded always. Nice... More

I was so grossed out being in Chandni Chowk - yes they had everything from shoes to tires to meat to jewelry to food - but nonetheless, I was beside myself. I go to India all the time and I'm Indian - but Chandni Chowk was nuts! The only thing that kept me sane was my traveling experience and street... More

We went on a rickshaw tour of this area of narrow lanes and many shops. It was a real thrill and an insight into what Delhi used to be.

You just have to visit Chandni Chowk if you are visiting New Delhi to feel the atmosphere of old (real) Delhi. Even if you don't buy anything. Just walk, take some photos and look around and be astonished by the fact how people still live or try to make their living. Of course people are trying to sell you everything,... More

I enjoyed wandering around, getting photos of crowds and mad traffic in the surrounding thoroughfares. It feels like the life you wanted to come and see in Delhi, compared to some of the more soulless areas of New Delhi.

The chandni chowk bazaar as such houses streets upon streets of textile shops, food stalls that offer lip smacking desi paranthas in extensive flavours, sweet shops and more... a bazaar in its true sense. bargaining is a must if you intend on getting fair prices...

This is a must visit place in delhi - u walk through winding narrow streets with sellers selling the most wonderful of wares... Each street is a unique character - one street for jewelry, one for clothes, one for steel.. one for parathas.. and that 1 street is an experience in itself!!
