Small yet sustainable, little shops and establishments that mushroom around temples in India are one of the most lively markets you can ever find. They are a melange of energy, color and life. Bustling with hectic activity and teeming with people, they showcase the many flavors of our diversity, culture and traditions.
Here are some random captures:
From flowers to footwear, jewelry to jackets you can shop for just about anything here. The items of worship are the essentials you will always find.
Flowers are of course the soul of these markets.
Native handicrafts and some traditional wares are hot favorites too.
Trinkets, junk jewelry and knick-knacks
Something to lure the kids with after having lugged them along the seemingly never-ending, circuitous queues to the insides of the temple
Refreshments and food can never be far behind
All in all, something for everyone!!!
