Bazaar Walk in Manek Chowk

Bazaar Walk in Manek Chowk

Duration: 2hrs

What this tour is about:

No visit to Ahmedabad is complete without experiencing the crazy chaos of Manek Chowk!

This is the city's biggest market for jewellery, foodstuff, textiles, wedding articles, fruits and vegetables. Located in the centre of the city, this bustling open square showcases the best of the city's bazaars and is a photographer's delight.

The market has many moods – in the mornings the vegetable markets are active, during the day time, it is dominated by the jewellery shops, and in the evenings, the food stalls start to emerge, serving hot, scrumptious snacks to hungry shoppers.

The nearby Rani no Hajiro is a 'ladies' market, with costume jewellery, textiles, and other knick-knacks and bargains.

When:

All days of the week, except Sunday. The best time to visit is around 11:30 a.m. in the morning or 4:00 p.m. in the evenings, when you can experience the markets at their busy best.

Rs 1500. per person for a minimum of 2 people. Solo travellers pay for two. Includes trained guide, rickshaw ride, personalised walk and all taxes.
