CHANDNI CHOWK

ONCE SHAHJAHANABAD’S most elegant boulevard, Chandni Chowk (“Silvery, Moonlit Square”), laid out in 1648, had a canal running through it, and was lined with grand shops and mansions. Today, it is still the heart of Old Delhi, where religious and commercial activity mix easily. At the entrance to Chandni Chowk is the Digambar Jain Temple, the first of many shrines along its length. Built in 1656, it also houses a unique hospital for birds.
