After having visited the Rajpath, Rashtrapati bhavan and Lotus temple area in new delhi, it was a stark contrast I had felt When I entered the Chandni chowk in Old delhi in every possible aspect.
First of all, the density of the people(crowd) moving around. It is difficult to walk with out touching any one even for a few meters. The crowded shops of all kind. Starting from the Redfort frontage, down through a big Sikh Gurdhwara, The shops are endless on both sides of the broad road with ethnic buildings. There are small lanes every 50 meters, with rows of shops selling every thing from dress materials of all kind, electronic goods,sweet shops and you can get any thing from this market. Most important thing is that this is the cheapest market in delhi if you have art of bargaining technique. Finally,We enjoyed riding in a cycle riksha from there to new delhi ( Pahar ganj near railway station area)paying little money ( Rs.40/-only) and enjoying the slow movement in the inching crowd, all the time wondering how the Riksha wala was able to move in such a pedastrian populated location. It was a great experience which you can not have in new delhi.
