This place is mainly for second hand books at good prices. You can even find some unused/less used books at 30-40% discount. The books range from fiction to comics to academics. Also, good scope for bargaining.. Good experience.

This attraction seems to be quite popular among the locals. On Sundays mornings mostly locals flock here to buy books on diverse subjects. I spent almost 2-3 hours roaming here, and sighted several and bought two vintage books. This is no doubt a bibliophile's delight but one has to haggle mercilessly.

A myriad collection of dog eared (used) and new books ranging from fiction, non-fiction, self-help, science and engineering. Tens and tens of street vendors sell these books for a cheap rate. The better you bargain, the cheaper the price of the book. Besides books, also found a vendor selling antique and old coins from the Mughal and British India era.... More
