Always a pleasure to do shopping at CP

It's my favorite place to do shopping as you get down your memory lane when you walk in this place with the same old shops adjusting along with the New Multi National Brands shops. You get great shopping and food options in this place with some of the Amazing Food joints. It is worth making a visit to CP once a month.

Very costly

Connaught Place is one of the most happening places in Delhi. The central park, to hangout in the evening, so many good cafes and lounges for every kind of meet ups, and celebrations, and the little street shopping. Even after visiting there regularly, you will find someone new to explore the next time. Must visit!!

Centrally located shopping complex with heavy footfall

With heavy footfall on every day, possibly Connaught Place is the most crowded place in Delhi.Almost every tourist visiting near by places would want to be here for sure.So Government should take more security measures who can keep vigil on the ever growing crowd.The Connaught PlacePalika BazaarCentral park with one of the biggest Indian Flags on one of the tallest posts.The gigantic LIC buildingThe Inner and Outer rings and many more make this a mist visit attraction.And once in Paalika Bazaar, the main mantra will be BARGAIN. And you might surprise yourself by buying a branded shirt for 100-200.Happy Shopping
