Chandni Chowk, means the moonlit square is the one of the oldest business hubs in the capital city. It is situated in the middle heart of the capital city and is a major part of old Delhi.
Chandni Chowk is the major street in the old Delhi for all the commercial and non-commercial purposes. This creation or the history of Chandni Chowk belongs to the 16th century middle in which the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan created this street. It was designed by his daughter Jahanara Begum Sahib who ended the construction of this chandni chowk in the 1650 AD.
The Chandni Chowk stretches front he Lahori Darwaza to the red fort situated on the other end of the street. The original design of the Chandni Chowk was having three sections which also included a large canal passing through the street. The first section was from the Lahori Darwaza to the Chowk Kotwali which is opposite to the Shish Ganj Gurudware and this section consists of a majority of Muslim population.
The other section was from the Chowk Kotwali to Chandni Chowk which was having the major business centres in it. The last section was from the Chandni Chowk to the Fatehpuri Masjid which was also known as Fatehpuri Bazar. At times the Chandi Chowk used to be the biggest market all over India.
The Mughal used to pass through the street of Chandi Chowk but in today’s time due to high population density in the nearby region the street of Chandni Chowk remains choked most of the time.
