Do not go there. There is no point in wasting time here. The place is always jammed and full of thieves and pick-pocketers.

As part of a day tour we took a Rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. The sights, smells and sounds gave a real snapshot of real life in Delhi. Something we won’t forget.

This famous place promises some nice eateries and is a shopper's stop. The jalebis are super tasty and the clothes are very attractively priced. However the place is not clean

Chandni Chowk is the height of all the contradictions of India: colorful but filthy, memorizing but repulsive, scrumptious but risky. Visit the Jama Masijd and climb to the top, then get lost in the tiny alleyways. Don't miss them old jalebiwala.

Take a rickshaw ride for some exhilarating sites and to experience local travel. The shops are great and absolutely EVERYTHING can be found there. Be careful with crowds and walking carefully to avoid mid-stepping into traffic.

If you only have 3 hours, I wouldn't do it. As others have said, traffic in Delhi is bad. You could miss your flight.
