Chawri Bazaar, one of the most visited markets of old Delhi. The word ‘chawri’ came from Sanskrit word ‘chawat’ which means a place where four roads meet. This is India’s biggest market for hardware items and wholesale paper selling wallpapers, paper for decoration, gift wrapping paper, office stationery and lots more. It is also specialized for wedding cards which are appreciated by clients for use of innovative and creative patterns, colors and mesmerizing designs. Also, there are few shops selling brass and copper utensils. Like many other markets of Delhi-6 this market too is overcrowded with cycle rickshaws on both the side of the road, hand thela’s, pedestrians shopping in bazaar and street food vendors selling food and other things. Today, where chawri Bazar metro station is located once, was the place where tram used to run before 1956.
The market is built in 1840. Chawri bazaar’s old buildings today have been turned into “modern buildings”.
