Location: Old Delhi




This place is a must on every tourist's itinerary list. Remnants of a glorious past will make one feel like one's back in the 18th century.

Cotton Market
As its name suggests, this bazaar specializes in making and selling pillows, quilts and mattresses. It is situated in the lane behind Jama Masjid.

Cycle Market
A busy market, it is located just beyond the cotton market. It still is the best place to buy all sorts of kids' bicycles, cycles and accessories in Delhi. It's also a great place for photographic equipment.

Meena Bazaar
A recent addition to the list of bazaars in Chandni Chowk, it has shops dabbling in readymade garments and cosmetics. The bazaar is basically aimed at pilgrims and tourists. Try the food at the 'dhabas' (roadside eateries) - it is delicious, but don't expect the place to be spick and span.

Churiwali Gali
The name means the lane of bangles. Once upon a time this was the place where bangles were made and sold. Now only a dozen shops remain.

Nai Sarak
A popular road visited by college and school students as it specializes in second hand school and college textbooks. Musical instruments are also sold over here.

Flea Market or Chor Bazaar
This Sunday Bazaar on the ramparts of the Red Fort is locally called 'Chor Bazaar' (a market of thieves) or 'Kabadi' (trash) Bazaar. Here as in other flea markets, one can get just about anything from antiques, beautiful bottles, carpets, car tyres to even used bullets.
