Good place to buy antiques

This is a good place to buy antiques. However the charm of it has diminished over the years. But still one can find old gramophones, silver and gold antique jewellery etc.

Our guide called this the Thief's Market, insinuating that most of the goods had been stolen & were being sold on. I'm glad we had him with us, as I'd easily have got lost roaming around the vast streets. You really can buy anything here, from antiques to parts of dismantled cars. They were literally hacking cars apart in the... More

A great place for getting a good view of an hectic crowded Indian flee market. You can find all kinds of things at the market, both good antiques and really bad dirty broken things.

previously very good place to buy antique items, and old items at cheaper rates, of course with ample bargaining. One should be cautious while purchasing for duplicates.

Place is full of people trying to pull one off. try not to buy anything important from the place. Great place to visit once to have feel of how a chor bazaar looks like and how it functions. Try to bargain as much as possible.

I really love places that shows you the REAL deal about the place, not the touristy stuff. This place is a top one at that aspect. It is raw, smelly and quite unique. It is a trashy place which every block is especialized in something - from rubber to metal, from vintage clocks to marble. It is a great experience... More

BARGAIN BARGAIN BARGAIN HARD!!! especially if you are a foreigner. The place is fun, and definately worth visiting. I know some local film people even some times would drop by to purchase or rent for props. But the vendors are smart to know that foreigners don't know a thing about antique. So they either charge extra or provide a counterfeit.... More

This is one of those places that you will enjoy it or you will hate it. Its crowded. Its smelly at times. Its chaotic. There seems to be no manner of rhyme or reason. Goods from the shops overflow onto the streets and everyone is hawking their wares. I was there with my 15 year old daughter and I was... More

If you are looking for unique antique furniture pieces or lamps do go to the chor bazaar. It takes a little bit of hunting but you may end up with something incredibly beautiful. We bought a vintage chest for a reasonable price. Be sure to bargain!! And do carry a bottle of water
