Chandni Chowk – Old Delhi, India


One of the oldest and busiest markets in Delhi, the Chandni Chowk traces its roots to the 17th century and the reign of Shah Jahan. You’ll find wholesalers of all types of goods, and it is very much the bustling, crowded, Inidan market one would expect.  With spice merchants (found at Khari Baoli), jewelry and attar (found at Dariba Kalan and Gulab Singh Johri Mal), cloth (at Katra Neel) and even electrical goods (at Bhagirath Palace, one of Asia’s largest electrical markets).  One could spend days fighting the crowds at Chandni Chowk to explore every nook and cranny at this mammoth market.
