As expected we can’t come inside since it’s past 4PM. Same fate what happened when we visited Masjid Jamek . Yet, we still managed to snap some pictures around the mosque.

We’d come to realize why there were a lot of people flocking around Masjid India. All because of the Flea Market or the Bazar. The Bazar extends from Jalan Melayu up to near the mosque.
The place resembles like what they have in Jalan Petaling. From clothing, bags, accessories, toys and even food. It is another paradise for wise and budget shoppers like Summer.

Chinatown and Pasar Seni are two of the places we usually go for budget shopping, however if you’re looking for an alternative for cheaper commodities then the Bazar in Masjid India is the best place to go.
Just an example: Tudung accessories 6 pcs for 10 ringgit instead of paying 20-30 RM in a regular store. Tudung which is normally above 20-30RM with same design and style can be purchase for only 5-10 RM. You can choose variety of designs, colors and sizes with a wholesale price . You may find a lot of things to buy here so guys be ready, pretty sure ladies will definitely get stuck here just what I did.
The shopping experience would not be complete if Summer can’t buy a souvenir or something that can add to her collections. Apparently she was unable to show her haggling prowess as the price was already cheap and we settle for the regular tag.

She got two lavishly decorated feather hair clamps ( violet and black color) for a price of 10RM, not bad right?
After fulfilling her retail therapy we left the bazar and follow the trail to Jalan Melayu. The Bazar in Masjid India will be now added to our regular weekend escapade aside from Chinatown and Pasar Seni. Soon, we’ll explore more of this exciting and crowded place. Jom! Jalan-Jalan
