Paharganj Tours

Paharganj
Paharganj is a neighborhood in the middle of New Delhi known for its atmosphere and cheap shopping. Always chaotic, crowded, and noisy, Paharganj is filled with budget hotels, travel agents, and a wide range of low-cost restaurants, making it a popular haunt with backpackers.

Main Bazaar Road runs through the most popular and chaotic part of town. This is lined with shops filled with clothes, shoes, books, incense, jewelry, textiles, handicrafts, and more. While far from being the most scenic place in the city, Paharganj’s cheap accommodation, international restaurants, and close proximity to the railway station and Connaught Place make it a common first stop for many on their arrival into Delhi.

Paharganj is the ideal place for those looking to pick up a bargain, and can be enjoyed as part of a guided tour of Delhi's markets. As well as having an expert's opinion as you shop and haggle for items, this offers the added benefit of being privately transported to several of the city’s other popular shopping areas. Brief visits to the area are also included on some bike and walking tours, with one unique tour offering the opportunity to visit a shelter for street children and witness what life is like on the streets.

Practical Info

Paharganj is located right near New Delhi Railway Station and at the gateway to Connaught Place. As you step out of the station, cross the road and you’ll find yourself at the entrance to Paharganj’s Main Bazaar.

Did You Know? Paharganj was popularized in the 1960s and 1970s by those on the hippie trail, and only since then has the area become a hub for backpackers and other low-budget travelers.
