Viral market. In here, you can find everything you need and you don’t need. All in one. Starting from the main gate, all kinds of fruits arranged in a beautiful way, coconut, strawberries, apples, dates etc. It continues to Fish market and Meat market. On the other side, you can find grains, lentils, peas and different kinds of nuts. Cross the road to cloth and shoes market. Many locals approached me to take photos and talk in Bengali language a kind of welcoming words. I love this place.

This is where the cities vendors get there produce. Go early in the morning to enjoy the chaos, the sounds and smells. After 8-9 or it is mostly over.

As everywhere in Bangladesh, foreigners are welcome and greeted with a smile.

I just was amazed how crowded and crazy busy this place was. It took us forever to go through the narrow streets. Flavors, sounds, and smells are all around!

Karwan Bazar also known as Kawran Bazar is a business district and commercial hub of Dhaka city. It’s situated very near to the Farm Gate area of Dhaka city, originally established it in the late eighteenth century. It’s is one of the largest wholesale marketplaces in Dhaka city. There are hundreds of small temporary shops in and around the market. The market has separate blocks for wholesale trade in fish, vegetables and rice. There is also a permanent shade for rows of shops that sell grocery items and toiletries. The head offices of several daily newspapers are located here.

There are hundreds of small temporary shops in and around the market. The market has separate blocks for wholesale trade in fish, vegetables and rice. There is also a permanent shade for rows of shops that sell grocery items and toiletries. Fish, vegetable and other products are brought to the market from all over Bangladesh. Some goods are imported from abroad. Every night hundreds of trucks bring goods to the various shops of the market. Indigenous means of transport like the vans or pushcarts also carry goods to the shops or from them to purchasers' addresses. Traders of this market export vegetables, fish and other agricultural goods not only to different medium and small markets of the Dhaka city or of the suburbs but also to foreign markets, especially in the Middle-East. It is the largest marketplaces in South Asia. As of 2002, the market had 1255 stores.

In my opinion, Karwan Bazar as one place summarizes almost everything about Bangladesh. It is at a time host of the largest five star hotel of the city, one of the biggest shopping mall, city's second largest fish and vegetable market and also one of the biggest slum. Pick pocketing and snatching is extremely common in this area so it is always better to keep an (extra) eye open when you're here.

Kawran Bazar named after a Marwari merchant Kawran is a business district and commercial of Dhaka city. In the late nineteen century, the place was developed as a market for selling pottery, crockery and other household products. Now there is a bazar where you will get fish, meat, vegetables, cereals and all types of food items along with grocery items and toiletries. Products are brought to the market from all over Bangladesh and some are imported from abroad.
