CHANDNI CHOWK-RECREATING THE
LOST GLORY
The Red Fort, Jama masjid and
Chandni Chowk have been jewels in
the crown of Shahjahanabad. Chandni
Chowk is the centrepiece and
dominant axis of the Walled City.
The original Chandni Chowk had
octagonal chowks with a water
channel running through the centre. Its
wide boulevard with prestigious
buildings and bazar created a vista
between the magnificent Red Fort and
Fatehpuri Mosque.
