Chaina Ram


ABOUT Chaina Ram

Chandni Chowk is a bustling market area of Central Delhi. It was designed in the 17th century by the Mughal king Shah Jahan’s daughter, Jahanara Begum. It used to be divided by canals which reflected the light of the moon at night and made the market come alive. And so it was given the name - Chandni Chowk. Chandni Chowk’s speciality is the variety of its markets and their ‘Indianess’. This is where you get authentic Indian delicacies. It is a well-known fact that there are over a 1000 varieties of sweets to be found here.
