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.

Its not worth going at all.... More

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.

I have been to many markets throughout Asia but nothing compares to this. It is huge, a rabbit warren of alley ways, up and down, crossing over. We wandered around for over 2 hours. We got there early around 830am as the vendors were setting up. We saw the pigs being delivered and being prepared for dissecting for sale. It... More

Bara Bazar is the place to buy local stuff, including fresh vegetables, meat and some items brought by local Khashi people which you can buy as a souvenir.

Probably interesting for foreigners. Looked like any other Indian bazaar except for the up and down topography. Not very clean. Lots of small eateries but not for vegetarians.
