In an age of online shopping and supermarkets, the culture of traditional markets in India
In an age of online shopping and supermarkets, the culture of traditional markets in India strives to survive. India, being a land of different cultures and ethnicity, can always impress you with its rich heritage through the wide array of traditional markets it hosts. These traditional markets reflect the culture of the place where it is located. These are not simple street markets, but ones which specialize as the traditional market of that place.
Chandni Chowk originally meaning "moonlight square" or "moonlight market", is one of the oldest and busiest markets in Old Delhi, now in central north Delhi, India. Built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor of India Shah Jahan, and designed by his daughter Jahan Ara, the market was once divided by canals (now closed) to reflect moonlight, and it remains one of India's largest wholesale markets.
