The Haat Bazaar
The bazaar comes alive every Wednesday and Saturday in the wee hours of morning. Vendors from neighbouring villages display their wares in the market where clothes, umbrellas and bags are sold on one side of the street and fruits, vegetables and spices on the other. The market is quite popular and usually everything gets sold out. So it's advisable to come early.
Timings: 7 AM - 5:30 PM on Wednesday and Saturday
Distance from hotel: 4kms
