It is the best place to enjoy shopping at the lowest price. You can also enjoy delicious food and can buy the best eye glass from ballimaran, which is known for wholesale eye glass market.

This market is really amazing ! It has EVERYTHING ! Trick is trying to find it all, not get lost and, of course, buy at the right price !! The only way I can suggest this is to hire a personal guide/shopper who knows the markets and where to go to get the best deals. Look up Delhi Shopping Tour... More

Mostly,my reason to visit Chandni Chowk is only to Shop,either for household thing,dresses,sarees...It too over crowded all times.One cant stop at roadside.But every thing is cheaper and cheapest from any another market.and each thing is unique.there are several markets of curtain,lighting options,dry fruits,sarees,dresses.I takes almost 5-6 hrs for purchasing.But its interesting market.Its the one stop shop for necessities.

Once it was an area where Mughal emperors shopped - the streets are wide and generous. Today there is a bazaar atmosphere. I think one can find anything under the sun here and hire any kind of service. Spices are widely sold and I found the air difficult to breathe because of their heavy concentration. Haircuts take place on the... More
