Paharganj Market

“Chaotic, but Hub for Bargain Shopping”

Paharganj, located west of the New Delhi Railway Station, is one of the known neighbourhoods of Central Delhi. During Mughal era, the place was famous as “Shahganj” or “King’s Ganj” or “Market Place”.

If you’re the faint of heart, this place is surely not for you as the area has a bustling crowd, chaotic streets and full of crumbling buildings. Famous for its cheap accommodations, it is a backpacker and a budgeted traveller’s paradise.
