From antiques to new-age art deco cabinets, Chor Bazaar in Mumbai is an antique hunters paradise. The Chor Bazaar roughly translates to ‘Thieves Market’. HolidayIQ Traveller Amit shares, “Chor Bazaar, in spite of this reputation, is said to sell mostly second-hand goods rather than stolen goods. The market is now famous for antique and vintage items.”

It is one of the largest flea markets in India. Chor Bazaar has a history that spans over 150 years. It was initially known as the Shor Bazaar, which means ‘noisy market’. but the British mispronunciation ‘shor’ soon became ‘chor’, and the name stuck.
Gorgeous antique furniture, vintage Bollywood posters, Victorian furniture, spare parts – you name it, Chor Bazaar has it.
