Whats shopping without a unique, pleasant shopping experience? Many people who live in New Delhi have never visited our own great shopping paradise, the Chandni Chowk. I can tell you-you must visit this place at least once and spend a day shopping, eating and have a memorable experience. Chandni Chowk is popular with the people of Indian origin settled abroad or the Non-Resident Indians ( NRI ) to shop their favorite bridal wear, Indian ethnic wear as well as Jewelry for any celebration or wedding. They use services of myway2india to get their favorite wear shopped and get international door delivery with huge savings on the shipping cost.
The place is easily accessible by Delhi Metro, reach Rajiv Chowk Metro Station and take yellow line going towards Samaypur Badli. Get down at the third station from Rajiv Chowk and you arrive at your destination, Chandni Chowk. You may also reach by Cab or an Autorickshaw but easiest is Delhi Metro.
The time clock just reverses by a few decades once you arrive in this place. Traditional shops, Cycle Rickshaws, hustle bustle, a sea of human heads moving in all directions will blow your mind away, if you are a foreigner this will an experience of a lifetime.
The Bazaar ( market ) has thousands of shops selling almost anything you can expect from India.
It has spices, dried fruits, jewelry, Lehengas, fabric, Indian ethnic wear, footwear, camera market, sunglasses, sweet shops, silk, bicycle market, and last but not the least the Great Indian Street Food. Chandni means moonlight and chowk means a square so if you really want to visit this place try to visit in the Moonlight. The markets with very narrow streets are called katras which are present on both the sides of the main road connecting Red Fort on one side to the famous Fatehpuri Masjid on the other. Katras of the Chandni Chowk
The baniya ( trader ) community settled in this place a few centuries back and this Katra is named after Neel Kanth Mahadev, Lord Shiva denoting blue color. Katra Neel was once famous for Indigo manufacturing and trading. Now its a market to shop for weddings and family functions. It will take you back in time with its narrow lanes having small and medium-size shops selling Lehenga Choli, Mens Wear, Shoes etc but please do not miss out on a 200-year-old shop of Mehandi. This place is home to the first Raymonds outlet.
This market is famous for Lehenga and Saree shopping few famous outlets here are Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam,Ram Krishna Sarees,Sunehree,Roop Fashion Art etc apart from these you can explore more than 100 shops selling unique Indian ethnic wear at a reasonable price.
Dariba Kalan is a famous market to buy precious stones, gold and silver jewelry. It derives its name from a Persian word Dur-e-be-Baha meaning ” unparalleled pearl” while kalan means ” Big “. One can buy fashion jewelry as well as many shop keepers have started keeping products easy on the pocket. Shopping from India is an extremely exciting experience and many foreigners who shop from India start sourcing these products to sell in their respective countries. It definitely makes business sense.
