    Chandni Chowk
    Stop: 3 hours -
    Walk through the oldest and busiest markets of Old Delhi and witness the sights and sounds of this charming market that houses some of the most historical structures of Delhi. Nestled in Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk, also called as Moonlight Square, was built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor- Shah Jahan. This heritage market has been a part of India’s glorious history, and travelling through the sands of time, it has grown to be one of India’s largest wholesale markets. This short 3-4 hour trail through the streets of Chandni Chowk begins at Shri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir, the oldest Jain temple in the capital city of Delhi. With a renowned historian of Delhi as your guide, enjoy some enlightening narratives and staggering facts about this heritage structure. See the Gauri Shankar temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva by a Maratha general and the famous Moti cinema that held many vital conferences during India’s freedom struggle. As you walk along, you will realise that this unique market has a charm that can only be experienced on foot- not through words or pictures, but by visually experiencing its fascinating markets, full of hustle and bustle. A short walk from the Moti cinema, is the palace of Begum Samru and the Central Baptist Church, who’s inception dates back to the 19th century. Lying next to each other in religious harmony are the historical Gurudwara Sheesh Ganj and Sunehri Masjid. Listen to the intriguing tales behind these heritage structures from the 18th century and marvel at their architecture. This history walk also covers the Ghantewala Halwai, Katra Shahenshahi, Town Hall, Chhunnamal's Haveli, Ghalib's Haveli and many other structures that add to the rustic beauty of Chandni Chowk. As this walk comes to an end, you would leave this captivating strip of Old Delhi, enriched with the knowledge of a place that has seemingly transformed with the passage of time, yet somehow, still managed to retain the charm of a bygone era.
