Devaraja Market Tours

With more than 100 years of history, the busy, open-air Devaraja Market is deeply woven into the history and culture of Mysore. This vibrant bazaar is a good place to experience a traditional Indian marketplace, with all its colors, chaos, and sense of community. Great for shopping, haggling, and photo opportunities, you'll find everything from flowers, fruits, and vegetables to incense and kumkuma (colored powder used for bindi markings).

Combine your trip with Mysore’s other key attractions on a guided full-day tour of the city, including a visit to the historic Srirangapatna. Alternately, you can opt for a South Indian cooking experience with a local family, which includes a visit to Devaraja Market to shop for all your ingredients.

Insider’s Tip: Mornings and evenings are peak business hours at the market, as are the weekends and days preceding festivals.
