Large market in multiple roads or lanes, Most consumable items are available. Better walk around with a face mask. So much dust raised by passing vehicles. Spices, tea and coffee are items worth buying from here.

The main bazaar area is crowded and traffic prone. Nothing too great about the place unless you have something specific in mind. The sweatshirt and woollens can be a good bargain though.
