Description

The place has the biggest wholesale market in the country and is still one of the busiest sectors of the city. The market place is huge with goods and services offered at cheap rates. It falls within the Old Delhi section along-with the Red Fort and Jama Masjid. The market place was once divided into canals which are now sealed. The canals used to reflect the moonlight and this is where the beautiful name comes from, Chandni Chowk (Moonlight Square).
