This is the heart of Delhi with lot of old traditions, restaurants, food stalls which people like extremely because of the real old taste, reasonable prices and no impact of modern times.... The people who are foodies and fond of supreme taste always prefer coming to Chandni Chowk. If someone wants to enjoy the great stuff then must go to... More

You can't visit Delhi without taking the metro to Chandni Chowk, getting out and straight into a rickshaw. But beware, the rickshaw driver will want to take you to the things he wants you to see. His list will include the spice market, a place for wedding dresses (weird, we have been married 28 years - surely he could see... More

Be here once and you would feel the actual feel of Old Delhi. you can find may things here cheap, cloths, accessories, variety of foods. Its crowded street and you have to be careful about your valet and other valuables. You get good bargain goods here.

This place got lot of things, with people of all categories. Famous for local street foods and shopping. I always preferred Halidram's restaurant for Snacks of Chandini Chowk.

Don't get lost. Be very careful. Don't get run over. Don't get ripped off. Don't get conned, don't pet the animals. Don't take to much money, wear suitable foot wear and blow your nose after you've been and take some strong mints and you should be ok. And then don't go back.

Depending why you come here, this place is either awful or great. This is a chaotic, dirty , lively, area of Delhi that has narrow alleys, and narrow shops selling tat or at best average quality goods. Street food in the area is plentiful but not great! I usually head directly to Nai Sarak, where almost every second hand book... More

This is a rue reflection of typical India. The streets are chaotic with street hawkers,shops , narrow alleyways, and a constant stream of people on foot and on motorcycles,autos and cars. It is bustling with activity and everybody going about their business. Not a good area for shopping for the tourists and it is advisable to be accompanied by your... More

One of the biggest wholesale markerts in Delhi. You will find anything and everything here. Really famous for the food, anything related to a wedding, electronics, books, music instruments as well as eye glasses! A maze of winding alleys and little hole in the wall kind of shops! Not for the faint hearted.

It is a shopping area but it is more of a historical place in the sense that it is associated with a Mughal princess. Otherwise it is not an ideal place for shopping. It has mostly cloth shops and most of them wholesale. Dingy shops but some of them has an aura of good days gone by. It is crowded... More
