Bangalore City Market | Vibrance and Life
Being the IT hub of India,
Bangalore has got a truly
cosmopolitan culture, atmosphere and vibrancy. With the growing economy of India,
Bangalore, place for the highest
paid young Indians, has grown up substantially in last few years. Everywhere
you would see the sign of economical boom. Pubs, restaurants, world class
shopping malls are being developed keeping the pace with economical boom. But Bangalore
has its own Indian charm in its old city. City Market is such a place with all
the elements backpackers would love to enjoy.
Being one of the oldest markets in Bangalore, City market got the vibrancy of its own. Even though it
fails to compete with the growing shopping malls here and there, still the livelihood
and life in city market is commendable. City Market has been named as K R
Market after the name of Mysore king Maharaj Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV.This market is more
than a century old and still so colorful and vibrant.
The activities start there at dusk, much before the sun
rise. One would hear the hue and busy-ness inside the market place at the early
hours. Wholesalers, retailers, day-today business everything go in its highest
pace. It is truly an experience being there at that time. I bet none of the
shopping mall can have this kind of vibrancy and color and lives.
Flower Market inside it is the best portion of the market
and at its best at the dusk. Being a wholesale market, one buyer can get the
minimum rates on flowers there than anywhere in Bangalore.
Flower vendors come here from outside of Bangalore
at night and the business starts at the time when the "early city"
edition of a newspaper is being published. Business goes as usual in a very
high pace everyday. One who wants to see the ocean of colorful flowers must
watch this extravaganza from the top. It will make you spell bound.
