Located near the railway station, the place is very crowdy at the pick times as you can things at very affordable prices and almost everything you can find. It is one of the busiest markets of the city.

Nearest metro is itself Chandni chowk. This place is full of chaos. But if you will xplore this place, its very good. Here, you will find taste with tradition like Jalebiwala, Parathe wali galli, dahi Bhalle, Papdi chaat, haldiram, faludaa kulfi. For tourist attraction - Gurudwara, redfort.

It is good to touch base with the old traditions, now and then. Specially in this new and fast changing environment. It is easy to approach Chandani Chowk now , because of direct metro route. You can buy all traditional stuff , specially for occasions like marriage.. Besides, shopping the CHAAT is awesome

Its the oldest and busiest market in Old Delhi and will surely take you back in time.Its home to several famous restaurants and eateries like: Paranthe Wali Gali, Nataraj's Dahi Bhalle, etc.(both a must try). One has to cross the market to visit Red Fort as its located within the market. Metro Connectivity Available.

You must visit here to experience the real India. Mental toughness and survival nature are very apparent here. You need to experience it yourself.
