  1. Omg i love this kind of markets! They are source.of all kind of unique things that one can’t find in shops. Great idea to write about it ✔

  2. Proclaiming Chandni Chowk as the best market in Delhi certainly is a big statement, particularly when you consider the huge amount of them clustered around the city. Nevertheless, it certainly does look as though Chandni Chowk has an edge over the competition, not only due to its incredible architecture but also the great food. I will be visiting Delhi in a few months and hopefully get a chance to swing by

  3. reminded the movie chandni chowk to china 🙂 i am heading to Delhi in 2 months time will definitely go there… love the pictures
