Originally called the “Shor Bazaar” because of the noise in the market, the bazaar has now come to be known as Chor Bazaar after the British couldn’t pronounce “Shor”. The place has been coined the name of Chor Bazaar since then, which literally means the Thieves’ market.
The place is full of old buildings, cramped shops, and the streets are always crowded. Chor Bazaar is about 150 years old, and it is said that the place was a favourite of the British back in the days. There is nothing that you cannot find in this market, making it one of the most sought-after places in the city.
Everything from real and fake jewellery, electronics, antique items, Victorian-style furniture.You can find stolen items here too, as the name of the market suggests. The amazing thing about shopping at Chor Bazaar is that you can bargain to no end and get goods at very cheap prices. This is why Chor Bazaar is so famous.
