Overview
A walking tour to unravel the legends and unique history of this precious heritage corner of Delhi. Whole Old delhi revolves around “Chandni Chowk”. An erstwhhile posh street with canals during Mughal era filled up with running waters & in the night the canal waters used to reflect moonlight. Hence it came to be known as Chandni Chowk, literally meaning moonlight street. It is having the mansions of the Mughal nobility — typical courtyard houses with a grand gateway (deori). After the British occupation of the city, especially during the nineteenth century, the Jain merchants of Delhi prospered in trade and started building havelis, which now form the streetscape of the old city, in their quite deplorable state. The Jain traders re-introduced Rajasthani elements in Delhi’s architecture. The long running verandahs of these havelis, their austere courtyards, and heavily decorated drawing rooms mark a period of socio-cultural transition.
