Chandni Chowk, or 'Moonlight Square' is the most famous and historic street of Delhi. It was laid out in 1648 when the walled city of Shahjahanabad was established and originally had a canal running through it as well as being lined with grand shops and mansions. Today, it is Old Delhi's main street and so is extremely busy with all sorts of traffic. It unites the whole country and performs its original function of processional route on Republic Day when the grand parade passes through this historic street.
