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.

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

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.

City Market : KR Market is also called City Market. This is the central market in Bangalore. This is where all the Fruits, Vegitables, Flowers etc are dropped off. Vendors purchase it in whole sale and then sell it in their respective areas. It is very dirty and filthy. When it rains there are rivers flowing down the road. It... More
