If someone want to experience the true blue Old Delhi's culture, food and royalness Chandni Chowk is the place to. Food (Paranthe wali gali, Karim's, Haldiram), Religion (Sheeshganj Gurudwara, Jama Masjid, Hanuman Mandir), Shopping.. You name it and you get it. On the flip side it's very crowded, narrow roads, and driving over here would be a big issue.

Definitely worth a visit but go with a group or guide, as we found it a bit overwhelming. Great place to experience Old Delhi and have a tuk tuk ride. We didn't have time to shop on our visit, but there were lots of interesting shop fronts.

If you wanna have to feel how the old Delhi looks like this is the best place to go. With lots of shops to shop from and a lot of hustle bustle, it is really a great place to spend a daytime. Lot of food vendors giving you the chance to have some street food. My visit of about 3... More

It's a wonderful place and the heart of Delhi. Lots of eating joints serving traditional Indian food - parathas, tikkis, dahi vadas, etc. This place is the major shopping hub of the National Capital. Closed on Sundays, it is a very busy place and best way to reach and go would be through Delhi Metro to avoid parking/driving hassles in... More

Don't try this on your own! We were in a bicycle rickshaw traffic jam. But the stop at the spice shop was worth every moment!

Wouldn't want to go there again... But Karims and Old Famous Jalebi wala is there...so maybe not...dirty and filthy...not good for shopping because everything is of very cheap quality.. If you have not visited the choatic Indian market, go for it...the rickshaw and auto wallah's are a mence too

This place is so busy, so old, so diverse, so chaotic, and so interesting. You never know what you'll see. I didn't buy one thing - just wandered and watched. Totally worth it.

This market in the old part of Delhi is a maze of shops, all selling much of the same thing, watches, clocks, the odd food items etc. The narrow streets are heavily littered and very little inspiring to buy.

Chadni Chowk is the teeming marketplace of Old Delhi. Pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle and rickshaw traffic crowds both directions in alleys barely able to handle one-way flow. Go with a guide. A pedal rickshaw through the most crowded sectors is a great way to take in all the shops and action, while keeping a little distance from aggressive merchants. (Shades of... More
