Details

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. Eventually, stolen goods started finding their way into the market, resulting in it living up to its new name! These days it's famous for antique and vintage items.

The area is full of crowded streets and crumbling buildings and can be a little overwhelming. Don't be daunted though, it's quite safe but do be careful of pickpockets. The shops in Chor Bazaar are open from 11 a.m. until 7.30 p.m., every day except Friday (which is Muslim prayer day). However, the area is still worth a visit on Friday when it comes alive with the Juma Market. This is the real thieves market. From sunrise on Friday morning, vendors cram the lanes selling all kinds of goods, many of them stolen. You'll have to get there early to get the best stuff though.

 

A must for second-hand bargain hunters looking for a unique find to take home.
