Chandni Chowk, Delhi - An Experience in itself

October 29, 2018




The Chandni Chowk (Moonlight Square) is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Old Delhi, India. It 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 of India Shah Jahan and designed by his daughter Jahanara. The market was once divided by canals (now closed) to reflect moonlight and remains one of India's largest wholesale markets.




Undoubtedly, a must visit the place by everyone. I thought I could easily cross the road in such bustling rush hour of the day, but for twice I need to venture back before advancing.


It is such a bustling spot to be in. People are always moving and if you didn't move you'll be dragged by the public. This place is insanely crowded, You'll not observe silence for even a second. There are noises all over the place, you'll hear individuals chatting, munching, whispering, shouting with each other constantly, or you'll encounter few individuals requesting headings to locate a specific shop, or you'll find shopkeepers praising their shops to get customers. Apart from general society,You'll hear petitions amid the supplication hours, the relentless sounding of vehicles and for the vehicle which doesn't have honk, they would attempt to talk in the highest point of their voice ( or yell ) to make space to move their vehicle and get individuals aside.





You will confront a few troubles while crossing the street on the off chance that you never been in swarmed places. For the most part, In India, you can cross the streets by demonstrating your hand to the vehicle to stop yet here in Chandni Chowk no hand can stop the activity except if you are movement police.


You'll discover old building overwhelmed with individuals, these buildings are really old.


All the commotions, honking, babbling, chattering, munching get paused for a day and that is on Sunday. Yes, you may have guessed it correct, the market is closed on Sunday. 

For the most part, individuals walk looking before their way look either right or left. Here, I need you to stop for a bit at any arbitrary point and look above, grasp the matured old building worked over the little paths developed to two-story. You'll discover power wires caught everywhere scarcely any space left preposterous to fly around. Here's a glance at how the road with caught wires look likes. 



Chandni Chowk market is one of the oldest and busiest markets of the world you'll find some streets with the fusion of old and new building comes together.




Old structures are presently installed with current advances, for example, climate control system, links, and so forth which are currently the essential requirement for the people living there. The avenues which were developed over a hundred years back, in spite of the fact that augmented yet at the same time couldn't ready to oblige the developing populace of the country in this way prompting disarray.
