I visited this place for a few hours and got taken away by it's simplicity. It is a place where as a photographer you will be able to take very nice street photography type of shots. Depending of the area where you are in or around the market the smells are from very pleasant to disgusting and vice versa. If... More

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours here one recent morning, and I have to say that this place is something you won't want to miss. Sure, it's crowded, noisy, dirty. But it is also delicious smelling, colorful, vibrant, and filled to the brim of the most beautiful and sweet smelling flowers and the warmest, kindest people you... More

It's a common thing for travellers to head for the market in foreign cities and sigh and say why can't we have markets like this at home? Look at this wonderful produce! And you will say all of that when you visit KR Market, but this bit you should head for is inside, down (or up), in the middle, and... More

We visited K R Market on holi, 2014. We reached KR Market at 5am, but the place was so full of life. Reach early to get a good parking, we went by car, and had no trouble parking at 5. The flower market was beautiful, vibrant with colors. The people there were very friendly. We dont know Kannada, but there... More

If you are a photographer, you will love this place. It's a riot of colour and humanity. I found the sellers friendly and approachable; most of them are happy to pose and they enjoy seeing their image on the camera LCD. Some people even stopped me to have their photo taken. The market starts very early (well before dawn) selling... More

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this place. The condition of this place is absolutely pathetic. There is just no reason to go this place, other than having to cross this place on the way to some other destination. Wonder how this got even added as an attraction. If you really want to vist an attraction in Bangalore,... More

After reading the previous review, I would believe that it would depend very much on the individual's preference regarding attractions. I had just paid a visit to KR Market earlier today and honestly despite the crowded mess the place was, I really enjoyed myself there (my only intention was to take photos there) and I really hope to go back...

The place is terribly crowded and quite filthy. Inspite of that, there is a charm about it and you can walk down avenue road to buy somethings like fruits, veggies in bulk at amazing prices which you will never get anywhere else in Bangalore. Its not worth visiting unless you have something specific to do. Everything is drowned out in... More
