Wow, what a market. Our taxi driver dropped us off on the outskirts of the market, we then had to take a cycle powered rickshaw to near where we wanted to go in the market. The rickshaw cyclist came with us into the market which was extremely useful otherwise we would have no clue as to where we would go.... More

I loved paratha wali gali . It's place of food lovers. My wife and friends enjoyed the malati and gobhi paratha there. Petha vegetables was so yummy.

If you want to see the old Delhi charm then this is the place. Enjoy the narrow lanes to have paranthas, chaat etc. the pride of Delhi. Go further ahead to buy books of all types. Try to visit this place on non summer then the enjoyment will be much more as during summers it can sap your energy.

Worth seeing core area of old Delhi. Very crowded and Indian ... be prepared. Bycicle riksha is a good means to get around. Busy markets and some remarkable temples in easy reach by foot - if you do not shy away from extremely crowded, narrow and dirty roads. More busy in evening, but also more life. ..

Why go to a place that is so busy that even pedestrians cannot walk freely, that is so dusty that you start coughing within minutes? I say for all westerners this is must go place to get any sense of the real India. Colourful, new scents and a beautiful liveliness.

No visit to Delhi is complete without at least a few hours in this ancient bazaar. It's a crazy bustling slice of pandemonium. Tuk Tuks, taxis, rickshaws and hordes of pedestrians compete for space while hawkers and merchants of every description compete for customers. Be sure to make some purchases at the colourful spice market. And wander some of the... More
