Wander through Bangalore's most bustling market

Krishna Rajendra Market

Renowned for its huge flower market, KR Market is a visual treat for those who enjoy observing a city’s underbelly. It sits on a site that was once the battleground for the Anglo-Mysore wars, and now occupies several floors selling anything from produce to dried goods to electronics.  


Visiting the market is a glimpse into how small businesses in Bangalore make a living, and any purchase you make improves the income of the vendor.

Getting there

Avoid driving and take the local metro. Alight at Chickpet, and walk to the market on foot.

Traveller’s notes

To experience the market awakening, it’s best to go in the early part of the morning. Bring your camera - you’ll be in for a visual treat with the colourful flower market.

Don't be afraid to get immersed in the hustle-bustle, and make sure you wear comfortable attire and shoes.
