Delhi by Night: Chandni Chowk Tour with Dinner

Summary

Meet your guide at your city hotel and drive to Old Delhi to kick off your thrilling night tour of this populated and electric city. Located within the gated walls of Shahjahanabad, this old world capital was founded by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Your guide will share plenty of stories and history as you navigate through the streets and sites.  Begin at Sisganj Gurwara, one of the nine historical gateways to the guru. This famous monument commemorates the martyrdom of Sikh Guru and is located in Chandni Chowk, an old market whose name means ‘moonlit square’. Learn how local Sikhs travel to this square for worship even to this day. Head to nearby Sunehri Masjid, the entrance to the famed Red Fort, which is just outside Delhi Gate. The salmon-colored stones that make up this Golden Mosque are a stunning sight that dates back to the mid-18th century.  Stop to sample traditional Indian sweet and savory namkeens at well-known Kanwarji’s (own expense) before you head off with your guide to the back alleys of New Dehli. Stroll past the bakeries and chai shops of Ballimaran Street near Chandni Chowk and experience the buzz of the city at night. Make a visit to the last wonder of the Mughal Empire—Jama Masjid. This famous mosque was erected in the mid-1600s and the bazaars that surround it stay open until the early morning hours. Finally, head to the legendary Karim’s restaurant for dinner. Enjoy a traditional Indian meal with your guide before returning to your hotel for the evening.
