Chandni Chowk is the major street in the walled city of old Delhi, which was originally called Shah Jahanabad. The walled city which includes the Lal Qilla Red Fort of Delhi was established in 1650 AD, by the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and designed by his daughter Jahanara Begum Sahib, who also made significant contributions in the landscaping of her father s new capital of Shahjahanabad. Chandni Chowk is home to several famous restaurants/confectioners Halwais . Chandni Chowk was featured in the 2001 Bollywood film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham where the leading lady Anjali Kajol and her sister Pooja Kareena Kapoor lived. Though portrayed as a neighborhood populated by a lower-class population, Chandni Chowk is shown to be a rich, cultural hub.

Hi, Just to add to the above information, I want to cite the famous Gurudwara and Jama Masjid in Chandni Chowk. Anyone visiting these old part of the city cannot miss these two important places. There is also a Hanuman Mandir beside them.
