chowk is a busy market cum heritage center situated in the heart of old lucknow. Its a great place to visit if you want to experience the good old days. First timers should beware of pickpockets and hone their bargaining skills if they intend on purchasing anything.

The makhhan you get here is known as daulat ki chaat in Delhi. It is extremely tasty. All vendors serve equally good variety. The best this to have here is veg chana dal kababs with parathas at dixit ki chaat. The chikankaari work is also of latest fashion and reasonably prised.

This place is also alias as old Lucknow. While visiting this place be prepared for traffic jam, lot of people moving around on road. This place has old shops of clothes with chicken kadhi (decorative cloths) If you are non vegetarian, look for a shop "idrish biryani" who serves mutton biryani and is very popular here

Multiple food choices (both veg & non-veg) are available here. Old world charm with traditional dishes served at some authentic food joints. Personal favorites: Rahim Nahri-kulcha & Idris Biryani.

This place is close to Bada imambada. Once you are here you must try the famous Malai Makhan, which is whipped milk cream and tastes great. There are many food option but we went inside narrow lane for the famous Chikkan work on cloth. This market offers better price than Hazratganj grand shops.
