One of the main markets of city. Old and cramped in parts but has lot to offer in terms of shopping. try reach earlier in the day to avoid the later hour rush.

Hustle bustle of city life can be experienced. Some high end shops and malls are there but the main attraction is the market on the footpath. Be aware of pickpocketers.

You can get local items at reasonable price in this place. There are fixed price shops, which are better for visitors. You can get quality Assam silk sarees also from this market.

This is one of the oldest market in guwahati. You can get nearly all items of clothes, shoes , make up items on the foothpath as well as branded shops. Need hard bargaining skills with streetside hawkers.
