The Devaraja Market Mysore Reviews
An explosion of colours and scents Sep 25, 2008
The Devaraja Market is an explosion of colours and spicy scents that can be compared to very few other markets in India. Stalls sell every imaginable fruit and vegetable, there are beautiful flower garlands as far as the eye can see and there are also piles of kumkum in every possible shade. Kumkum is the coloured powder used for bindi dots on heads of married women and religious rituals.
This market is also the perfect spot to take some great pictures, and like everywhere else in India, the people don’t mind posing for you.
