Devaraja Market, Mysuru (Mysore)

(4.3/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • I did not like the market. The usual place, you can buy what you need. Expected more. Just spent time in vain  more »
  • Buy only fruits and vegetables beware of perfumes of low quality sold there luring foreigners and selling perfumes as essential oils for essential oils and incense go out do not buy in this market it'...  more »
  • Even though we were only slightly skeptical, this market has surprised us. We were already on many markets in Asia and this was one of the better ones. The market is coloured, fruity and flowery. Very authentic, absolutely no junk market. I love to photograph and to observe. We join the many positive comments. We were there an hour before the evening meal and have not regretted it.

  • There are good seats near the entrance to the Devaraj Market. Vehicles are not allowed in this area. Many people come here just to sit and relax especially between six p.m. and nine p.m.
  • Best market.. We get all kinds of fruits, vegetables, flowers.. Even grocery shopping is recommended
  • Hard to find an entrance but a maze of craze in here. There's a young guy selling essential oils who is quite the salesman to tourists. He seems over the top but his oils are good. Got the essence of CK Eternity (9 flowers) from him. Wish we had more time to explore
  • Good options for fresh vegetables, fresh flowers. And visiting the old planned market in the world is definitely a different feel.
  • It is one of the oldest organized market in India. Fresh n nice vegetables and fruits of local flavor would be available.
