The whole place is a labyrinth of alleys or gullies which are in perpetual chaos. They are crammed with jewelry, fabric, electronic stores, and persistent hawkers. Tea shops are a common sight along with small pan shops.  The lanes are always swarming with people, which makes it difficult to walk in them, so basically you are pushed and nudged to your destination. This doesn’t seem quite tempting, but Chandni Chowk remains popular amongst Dilliwalas and tourists.

2. ARCHITECTURE OF THE YORE
