'Chor Bazaar, located close to Bhendi Bazaar in South Mumbai close to location in kamathipura', is considered one of the largest flea markets in India. The place is one of the traveller sights of Mumbai. The word chor means thief in Marathi and Hindi. The marketplace is thought to have originally been known as Shor Bazaar, that means noisy marketplace. The current call is said to have come from a British mispronunciation.
Eventually but, stolen goods began finding their way into the market, resulting in it residing as much as its new name. According to famous legend, in case you lose something in Mumbai you may buy it returned from the "Chor Bazaar". The market has been noted in famous novels, such as Rohinton Mistry's Such a Long Journey, wherein it's far described as "not a pleasing place".
In spite of this reputation, Chor Bazaar is stated to sell mainly second-hand items in place of stolen items.
The marketplace is now well-known for antique and vintage gadgets. It referred to as Mini Market gives vintage Bollywood posters on the market. Others offer genuine Victorian furnishings, alternative components for motors, and so on. Although deals are every so often wonderful, haggling is considered obligatory. This is largely an "prepared" flea market, where one has to rummage through junk to find what one needs.
