  • Jump feet first into this amazing market! It’s loud and colourful and you’ll need to bargain hard (but it’s all good fun). No need for a guide just get lost in it all and enjoy.  more »
  • Really good market offering a real insight into day to day living. Yes there are traders hard selling the usual rubbish but this is alongside an entire aisle of coconut sellers. The grown ups liked it...  more »

  • True Indian market. Different sections for flowers, vegetable and fruits, spices etc. The flower market is amazing. You can keep clicking photos. Very reasonably priced. Fruits and vegetables are so fresh. Though not very clean but better than other markets in other cities. Go in morning to enjoy hustle bustle .
  • As I own a cafe My most of the mornings are spent here fetching some farm fresh vegetables. The vendors are kind and helpful. Unlike any other market u see this place is well maintained, clean and tidy.
  • Personally, I love the intensive colourfulness and the huge variety of this place! You definitely have to visit the Devaraja market when being in Mysore, because this is the real and original market. I especially appreciate the amazing kindness of Adil, who owns a oil and incense stick shop there. Because even though this place is fantastic, there are still some people who try to cheat you. He's the most trustable man in the market and therefore I'm glad having met him!
  • Ever thing available at reasonable rate. No cheating , bargain can do. Vegetable market is very nice quality of vegetable available in fresh condition.
  • This market takes me to good olden days which is difficult to spot in Bangalore anymore. You will find anything & everything here. Also those who walk into this market will next walk out bare hands, it is that tempting.

Where to stay in Mysuru (Mysore)
