4.3/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Get a glimpse of the locals’ daily life at Devaraja Market, a colorful and vibrant bazaar with over a century long history. Named after a 17th century maharaja, the original market could be traced back to the Tipu Sahib’s era and 18th century Kingdom of Mysore. Walk among the stalls stacked with traditional flower garlands, incenses, spices, and conical piles of colored powder used for “bindi”--dots that Hindu women wear on their foreheads. Fresh fruits are sold on the north end of the market, while the south end offers a vast selection of fresh vegetables. You can also find some souvenirs and kitchen utensils.

  • Visit in the early morning and see the city waking up. Flowers being arranged, spices piled up while little boys serve steaming chai to shopkeepers 
  • A visit to this covered market is pure pleasure for all your senses. Smells, sounds, colours, tastes. This is the main covered market of Mysuru and is not meant to be a tourist attraction as it only c...  read more »
  • Fun to look at all the different fruits, vegetables and flowers. Beautiful colours and interesting smells. 
  • The Devaraja market was built during the reign of Chamaraja Wodeyar IX (1868 – 1894). Probably, Mysore's very first Super Market, where you could just walk in and pickup almost anything under the sun! It's busy, colourful, noisy, chaotic but best place to pick up vegetables and fruits from very vocal, but friendly hackers.
  • A wonderful market for all sorts of shopping. Be it spices or fruit, you will find it there. Even if you don't want to buy anything, the colors and the atmosphere are unique.
  • Shop eat and shop some more! From silver jewellery to silk sarees...from sweet shops to vegetable market...from branded clothes to road side vendors...this has it all
  • If you are looking for market feeling, want to buy vegetables or just want photos from paint powder cones, then this is a good place to start. Bargaining is part of culture so puzzle boxes, flutes and paint powder is likely to pay a quarter of the initial offer (especially if you do not need them). Easily accessible from city bus station.
  • Very good fruit and vegetables market.must see how they arrange fruits and vegetables in the shops
