KR Market is a busy, vibrant and crowded market in the heart of the city. Go early in the morning to watch fresh vegetables and flowers arrive for the day. A photographer’s delight, this market whips up a frenzy especially before important religious festivals.

Flowers of all types flood the area and the market is buzzing all day. When you first look at it, out seems like chaos .. and that's when... More

So much colour, good smells (and a few bad), and perfection among chaos. Incredible fruit&veggies, gorgeous spices and beautiful flowers. :) Very friendly stall owners. Make sure you go inside to the flower section. It's so beautiful.

A street photographer's delight. this market opens at 5 in the morning ...make sure you are there to witness the colorful flowers unloaded and vendors eagerly selling the beauties. the adjacent avenue road is also amazing for photography .......visit the market to enjoy the buzzing life. The vendors are people friendly and really don't mind you taking their pictures.

this is kind of street market and the main area in bangalore. Also, popularly known for its flower buying and selling. You will get all kinds of fresh flowers here. If you wanna check out other street shopping you may even do that too...

Fun but dirty and stinks. A part of India that must be seen. Check out the underground parts of the market also. Sometimes a bit hard to find, the marked location in trip advisor is basically WRONG!! Check the location on google maps!

This market is very very busy. It's dirty and garbage is sorted on the streets but it is also beautiful and lovely. I felt absolutely safe and people were curious about me since they don't see too many tourists here. The flower market is stunning, the handicraft, couloirs and scent of jasmine ( and cow poo at times). Fruits and... More

I have rated this place as "very good" but I'm really not sure how to categorize this place. This is one of the oldest shopping areas of Bangalore with everything in it. The best place for street photography, specially the flower market. A must visit place for history lovers too but be careful about the dirt there
