 Chor Bazaar 

Chor BazaarChor Bazaar or Thieves Market is located in the busiest section of Mohammed Ali Road and Pydhonie. This flea market invites those looking for a good bargain. Here, the Mutton Street sells everything but mutton. This street is lined with small antique shops, which sell anything from old paintings to crystal chandeliers and British-style furniture.

According to local shopkeepers, Queen Victoria once visited this place. She realised that her violin had been stolen and alerted the local authorities, who found it in one of the shops on Mutton Street! A British officer is supposed to have said, “Why, this is nothing but a bloody thieves market." That was how Chor Bazaar got its name.
