Even though the building is quite run down, it still remains a typical meeting place for both locals and tourists. Besides fruits and vegetables, the markets sells Mysore silk, wood carvings, and lots of types of incense. I really noticed the piles of stores selling incense sticks, fragrances and colored powders, though lots of the perfumes were pretty poor quality. Mysore is famous for silk sarees (Mysore Silk), sandalwood carvings and the many varieties of perfumed incense. Places Mysore in the market can be a good place to start, like Ashoka Road, Sayyaji Rao Road and head a mixture of Western and traditional shopping from India to Devaraj Urs Road.
