Replete with travellers, both Indian and foreign, Paharganj is the most chaotic, noisy, dirty and yet the most vibrant market of Delhi. Dotted with umpteen hotels, brothels, cheap bars, and ultra cheap restaurants; the labyrinthian alleys of Paharganj have a lot more to offer than visible to the naked eye. The proximity to New Delhi Railway Station and Connaught Place, the availability of cheap guesthouses and almost everything of utility available on the streets, makes this market every traveller's paradise and every backpacker's haven. The neighbourhood, although haywire, is a brilliant medley of vibrancy, charm and a desi city atmosphere, in the heart of the poised metro city.
Bustling with tiny shacks, unhygienic eateries, budgeted hotels and souvenir shops; Paharganj is the must visit place if you’re looking to explore the real part of Dilli. Laced with everything from books to jewellery, bags, scriptures, idols, harem pants, handicrafts, brasswares, Indian tea and the like; it is the perfect place to shop anything at the lowest possible price. Mostly popular for banana pancakes, Bob Marley merchandise and smoking shenanigans; the alley is a wonderful amalgamation of colour, chaos and culture. Paharganj, rightly, can be defined as a tiny world in itself; it brims with experience and exposure, and you are sure to get enamoured by its audacity to stand out from the rest of the city.
