Mad place!

It is absolutely worth visiting. We were walking there in +44 degrees and it was very strange experience. Not so nice but interesting without doubt.

Chandni Chowk is the place , Where you can everything with mouthwatering food!!! Situated in old Delhi near Jama Mosque. You can take Rickshaw (pulled by a Man with 2/3 Sitting options) and roam around there. Must try the foods which is amazing. Worthy & must recommended to do list in Delhi.

We walked around Chandni Chowk and the bazaar streets for several hours. Always felt safe and kept wondering about everything we saw, the noice, the chaos, the aroma. Guide in our opinion not necessary

Chandni Chowk provides visitors to an insight into old Delhi. It's bustling and super busy. It has lots old lanes with many shops but prepared to get lost as you wander around. Great to experience!

Chandni Chowk is just outside of Chandni Chowk metro and easily accessible. If you need low cost clothes, belts, fake sun glasses, local chat etc this is the place where you need to be. There is no specialty of this place except Red fort being at walkable distance, a Gurudwara. An Indian staying in Mumbai , Chennai or other metro... More

Our guide took us on a pedal rickshaw which let us see right inside this magical area.... Somewhere we'd been looking forward to seeing for ages, and we weren't disappointed. Colours, noise, smells.... A kaleidoscope of India at its absolute best.... Don't miss it.

It might be too crowded but a great place to explore. You just can't miss out on the jalebi vala and nataraj chaat.... Try to avoid it during summers.... The rabri in parathe vaali gali is a must have

Built right opposite the Red Fort, it is today a flourishing market for all types of shopping viz. clothes, jewellery, stationery, eating joints etc. Very crowded.

You will find everything in these streets. There are special streets for different things but you need to haggle to get the reasonable prices.
