CHANDNI CHOWK MARKET

India 039I went by Rickshaw on a memorable shopping trip to Chandni Chowk Market which is in Old Delhi. It has streets and streets of shops, all somewhat organized so that the same types of wares are in the same street. For instance the book market where you can find books and paper goods, the Spice market, the Gold market and the Sari market and the Silk market There are of course crowds of people and other rickshaws, many of which are carrying very heavy loads of products and also many people carrying very heavy loads. It is wonderful and I was able to take quite a few pictures from the rickshaw. I set my camera to sport and that seemed to shoot fast enough to maintain focus.

I was also able to get some photographs of the local Mosque which is one of the oldest according to my guide. I was lucky and had an English speaking rickshaw driver who proved to be an excellent guide. I shopped at a lovely spice market who packaged my purchases very well and a silk shop that had some really good quality silks. I bought some silk scarves a pashmina shawl, and a Lengha which is a long shirt and tight leggings.

Probably one of the most impressive feats of the Chandni Chowk market is the way the electricity is managed without an immediate explosion.ImageImageImage
