college tour packages in south india ,Delhi (now Old Delhi) was established as a capital area
in 1600s by the Mughals and the imposing monuments built by their rulers have come to
symbolise India. Here, the sightseeing places include the Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Rashtrapati
Bhavan, Jantar Mantar and many more. The Jama Masjid area is famous for eateries serving
local cuisines. Chandni Chowk, Karol Bagh, Khan Market, Palika Bazar and Connaught Place
are the busiest markets in Delhi where street shopping could be done.
Chandni Chowk : It is the perfect place to shop in. This densely populated market has been
around for more than three centuries and was once visited by merchants from Turkey, China
and even Holland.
The Chandni Chowk (Moonlight Square) is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Old Delhi.
Chandni Chowk is located close to Old Delhi Railway Station. The Red Fort monument is
located within the market. It was built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and
designed by his daughter Jahanara. The market was once divided by canals (now closed) to
reflect moonlight and remains one of Indias largest wholesale markets.
The bazaar, shaped as a square was given elegance by the presence of a pool in the centre of
the complex. The pool shimmered in the moonlight, a feature which was perhaps responsible
for its name. Shops were originally built in a half-moon shaped pattern, now lost. The bazaar
was famous for its silver merchants, which also have contributed to the name of “Silver Street”
as silver is referred to as Chandi in Hindi, a slight variation of which forms Chandni.
