There are plenty of shopping options available at economcal rates. One must be strong in bargaining to gain. The shops are small offering wide varieties. At times, there is rush and heavy traffic.

Great place to get your local on. Lots of little shops and a great spice place called the spice King. Bring back your Indian curry but be ready to explain it to customs.

The market is very old and one can buy all sort of things at affordable price. However, it is crowded and not recomended carrying a vehicle.
