Chandni Chowk, Delhi: 36 reviews and 91 photos
Chandni Chowk is the centre of all commercial activity in Old Delhi. This wide street facing the Lal Quila (Red Fort), stretches from the Digamber Jain Temple at one end to the Fatehpuri Mosque at the other. It is easy to get lost in the maze of tiny lanes and streets that surround Chandni Chowk. These tiny streets are a hub of frantic commercial activity during business hours. Business is still carried out in the old ways here, some of the streets are too narrow for any kind of vehicle to get in. You can still find loads of material being carried on carts, wheelbarrows and cycle rickshaws. Every street has a story to tell and every lane offers an interesting mix of old and new - from wholesellers of Fabric, Books, Electronics Components, Spices, Dry Fruits and Medicines to regular shops offering Clothes, Electronics, Traditional Delicacies and Sweets. Chandni Chowk can be quite an intimidating experience for a first timer. The sheer over crowding, pollution, congestion, smell and noise, can all be a serious assault on your senses. A visit to the chowk can be anything - from a truly fascinating experience to the most frustrating one.
Address: old delhi, opposite the red fort.
