KR Market is a busy, vibrant and crowded market in the heart of the city. Go early in the morning to watch fresh vegetables and flowers arrive for the day. A photographer’s delight, this market whips up a frenzy especially before important religious festivals.

Spanning across the Bangalore Fort, Jamia Masjid and Kalasipalyam bus depot, this is a veritable feast for eyes and wallets. On one end is the Sadar Patrappa (SP) road, for all things hardware and interiors. Busy, narrow, always crowded and restless - this is the...More

The place is looks like waste management site and full of bad odour. Better to wear a mask before going to this place. But the stuff sold here (e.g. fruits and vegetables, flowers, floor mats, other articles) are very cheap and pocket friendly. Better to...More
