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.

This place just the Kind of colorful assault on the senses that a traveler expects when visiting India. From the flowers to the spices and vegetables this is as local as it gets. It's a must-visit location when in Bengaluru.

Shabby, crowded, dirty streets, cows all over, and wonderful. This is the great flower market of the city and there are gorgeous piles and coils of flowers of every color, rooms of them. We took dozens of photos, just beautiful. Any auto-rickshaw driver will take you there for a buck. We think it was the highlight of Bangalore.

Any crowded market in India is an experience - KR Market is no exception. However, like a trip to any market, it can become overwhelming. I would keep it short and recommend going with a local if you are a foreign tourist.
