Kalbadevi is one of the ancient locales of Mumbai that has its history closely interwoven with that of the city. Named after a Hindu Goddess of the same name Kalbadevi bustles in the North of Crawford Market. It is predominantly a Muslim area and replete with traders dealing in a host of merchandise to keep you engaged here.
Kalbadevi is abuzz all the time of the day with its quintessential
chaos that reigns supreme here. But there is a lure in that chaos, an
essential shopping experience that you don't get often and long for more
once you venture in here. Kalbadevi has exclusive sets of markets
devoted to items specific.
There are streets where you have a line of shops selling a single
product, which makes all the difference. Here is one Zaveri Bazaar,
literally translated into a market for jewellery and that is what being
sold here. Go buy your heart out and splurge to your content. Kalbadevi
is also home to Mangaldas market, an exclusive bazaar for clothes where
you can drape your dreams. For those having a fetish for leathers may
well make rounds to Dhabu St. And who could ignore the Chor Bazaar, a
place that specializes in antics. Here you can get long lost and
forgotten treasure trove or a sword of some Maharaja or who knows you
may lay your hands on Alladin's Magic Lamp!
