Every city will have one of this kind of bazaar. Kind of flea market. Visit this place just to experience the local culture. Avoid during rains as the place gets dirty with slush.

Had gone there to buy some local fruits but its extremely crowded. Not a very pleasant place to go. Rain added topping on the cake making it muddy all over.
