Worth seeing core area of old Delhi. Very crowded and Indian ... be prepared. Bycicle riksha is a good means to get around. Busy markets and some remarkable temples in easy reach by foot - if you do not shy away from extremely crowded, narrow and dirty roads. More busy in evening, but also more life. ..

Why go to a place that is so busy that even pedestrians cannot walk freely, that is so dusty that you start coughing within minutes? I say for all westerners this is must go place to get any sense of the real India. Colourful, new scents and a beautiful liveliness.

No visit to Delhi is complete without at least a few hours in this ancient bazaar. It's a crazy bustling slice of pandemonium. Tuk Tuks, taxis, rickshaws and hordes of pedestrians compete for space while hawkers and merchants of every description compete for customers. Be sure to make some purchases at the colourful spice market. And wander some of the... More

My goodness - what a place!! Extremely busy, people, rickshaws, cyclists everywhere weaving through the little lanes and alleyways. Full of market stalls, fruit and veg selling everything you could possibly imagine - books, clothes, spices, flowers, fish, chicken etc and lots of stalls serving food a typical flea market! Everywhere you look there's a stall crammed into every corner.... More

Chandni chowk is main pillar of Delhi. No doubt about more traffic here. You can visit by metro, which is the best option. From food to shopping you can enjoy whole day here. Best shops with best prices. Just love the place .

We were approached outside the Red Fort by a rickshaw driver who offered to take us around the market. We made it clear that we only had about 20 minutes to take a ride around the market and wanted to only stop at the much talked about "Jalebi wala" and we were by no means interested in shopping. Negotiating with... More

It's a very lively place buzzing with people you will see all types of shops here. It's mainly for garments.. You can also have local delicacies here which is really awesome.. You can visit Lal quila which is nearby..

Once this place was used by Mughals, it is one of the Delhi oldest market. A bit congested and overcrowded. Not very clean and hygienic. For shopping it is one stop destination for any occasion. This place is also known for it eateries. There are plenty of option available.
