Chor Bazaar



Mumbai is rich, Mumbai is poor.
Mumbai is fast, Mumbai is slower.
Little bit sweet, and little bit sour,
Sometimes it’s hot but not too more….

Mornings are energetic and evenings are electric.
Noons are lazy but Nights are crazy
And any one you ask he always say “M busy”
Dude, life in Mumbai is not so easy

There is lot of Masti with little bit of Maska
Welcome to the city that can’t live,

without Bollywood Chaska ~ Jasraj Sangani

Located near the Bhendi Bazzar, in South Mumbai, it is very close to the Crawford Market. Although weekends are a good time to visit the Bazaar, the best time would be Friday, as the sellers replenish their stock. A word of advice – you can also expect many more hopefuls on Fridays, so be prepared for a crowd.

This was certainly one of the most fascinating places I have had the pleasure to visit. Although a quick glance would have you realize it’s basically an “organized” flea market, where one has to rummage through junk to find what one wants. I choose to document the people who run these amazing shops rather than just photograph the objects sold here. Since most days it’s famous for antique and vintage items.

Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar, which literally means “thieves market”, has a fascinating history that spans more than 150 years. Apparently, it was originally called Shor Bazaar, meaning “noisy market”, but “shor” became “chor” because of how the British mispronounced the word. In spite of this reputation, Chor Bazaar sells mostly second-hand goods rather than stolen goods. Chor Bazaar, located near Bhendi Bazaar in South Mumbai near place in kamathipura’, is one of the largest flea markets in India. The area is one of the tourist attractions of Mumbai.
