The ancient historical cities-Babylone, Nineveh, Urs, Warsaw, Machipichu, Zimbabwe, Lahore, Peshwar, Tunisia, Isfahan, Sahajahanabad have exclusively been studies from socio-economic and cultural angles. Sahajahanabad is the luckiest city to survive among seven cities of Delhi, the other vanished being-Lalkot, Siri, Jahanpanah, Tuglakabad, Firozabad and Purana Qila. Chandni Chowk is the major Spine of Shahajahanabad which is world famous and so are the monuments ? Red Fort and Jama Masjid. Its Koochas, Katras, streets, bazars, Havelis have no synonimi throughout the world. The townscape studies reveal very interesting serial visions of its chowks, city wall street and the gates.
