Paharganj, New Delhi

2.1
#21 of 78 in Shopping in New Delhi
Noisy and chaotic, Paharganj is a busy neighborhood in Central Delhi filled with shops, push carts, street stalls, and rickshaws. Right across the road from the New Delhi Railway Station, this vibrant district stretches for about a 1 km (0.6 mi) and draws shopper with its clothes, bags, shoes, books, music, and handicrafts sold at bargain prices. Lose yourself in the multitude of colors and people, but keep an eye on your belongings, as some tourists occasionally report instances of petty theft.

    Each year, several times the number of days in the trávim district. It is full of traders and very cheap goods of all kinds, but not only that, it is also a city within a city that lives in the side streets with their distinctive way. Meet tourists from around the world, but also travellers and traders from all over India. The cheapest hotels and many travel agencies and shops with anything. Great location at the beginning of the trip to India.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists.
