This was a very large market and surprisingly well managed and clean. There were myriads of small and large stalls selling all the basics of life and some not so. essential. It was crowded and interesting .It was closed on a Monday.

Unlike some other bazaars in the world, this one is really neat and well taken care of. The products are nicely displayed and you can get some really nice photos. It is worth the detour.
