This noisy, crowded street market is identified as being quite traditional, with saris, jewellery, Indian food (especially sweets, treats and delicacies) and spices the main attractions. It also has the books, clothes, shoes and electrical goods that come with the territory of major city markets. The cacophony of music and shouting coupled with all the action and the people means this can be an overwhelming experience, but this has been a centre of trade since around 1650AD so its worth venturing into for the history as well as the shopping. Chandi Chowk sits between Delhi’s Red Fort, the Jama Masjid Grand Mosque and rows of smaller temples.
