This place is extremly crowded and moreover the little streets add more to the problem.Anyways this is famous place for saree shopping in Delhi.Also you can have the taste of street food here which is below average.Its worth to skip the sight if you are not here for shopping.Nearest metro station is Chandni chowk on yellow line.

Some really good street food. Look out for vendors who have been there for several generations - they have a reputation to maintain. Alley ways behind are full of small enterprises selling everything from spices (visit the spice market) to paper, wedding invitations, saris, and ironmongery. You come out wired from the energy of everyone around you. Well worth a... More

Wandered round here as part of a walking tour; it was fascinating to see the number and range of stalls. Scary to see the meat stalls where the boys prep fresh buffalo hooves with a big blade held between their toes, not looking at what they're doing but chatting away to all and sundry! I never knew buffalo brains were... More

Chandni Chowk is one of my favourite places to visit in Delhi. It deserves a ricksha ride through and around in the area to take in the hustle and bustle if the streets, all street food vendors (don't sample unless you're sure you can take it), spice shops etc.

I often visit Chandni Chowk for my business visits but the place is much more than just business. You can find great tasting chats to sweets and some never seen items like Daulat ki chaat. Red fort is also nearby and KInari bazar, wholesale cloth market and jewellery hub kucha Mahajni is situated within. A must visit place if you... More
