I had gone to Delhi for my promotion interview. The interview was supposed to happen the next day so I thought of utilising the evening a day before. I took metro to reach Chandni chowk station and I could hardly breathe in extensive crowd. As soon as I stepped out from station I saw huge traffic jam. I had never... More

LOVED this place...thrifty shopper's paradise especially if you are prepared to do some serious...or not so...negotiating. Wish we could have spent a whole lot more time here...a three hour visit was FAR too short.

This is the real Delhi. The old Delhi where everything originated from. From shopping to eating- everything is here. Prantha Galli, Lal Kila, Dahi Bhalle, Rabri Faluda, Karachi Halwa- everything is blissed. And this is perfect place to shop for wedding. Bargain as much as you can.

This market was quite crowded, dirty and fast paced. I was with a group and as a woman who was modestly dressed I was stared at the entire time. However, it was very interesting to get a sense of what Delhi is like.

Very,very busy and crowded,you will either love it or hate it,A great place to start exploring/getting lost in Old Delhi. A truly unique place to visit and eat.Parts can be a bit hassley,but thats Delhi for you,dont be put off its all good natured. There is a wide variety of animals wondering around,that all had a touch of spice.

If you are a foodholic then you should definitely visit this place. Some of the best paranthas are available at this place at very cheap prices which makes it a perfect spot to visit.
