Chor Bazaar, located in South Mumbai, is one of the largest flea markets in India. A maze of alleyways, it is known as the Thieves Market, stemming from ‘Chor,’ the Hindi word meaning thief. Here bargain-hungry tourists rummage for goods at throwaway prices and it is often assumed that the goods sold are stolen.
