Sadar Market, Jodhpur, India

If you live for hustle and bustle and love your markets heaving with human energy, then Jodhpur’s Sadar Market is for you.

Focused around the old city’s iconic clock tower, known as the Ghanta Ghar, the market spills into streets, back alleys, and almost every ferret warren in the city; it’s not unusual to brush past cattle while shopping for Rajasthani textiles, bump into a chi-walla while picking out the perfect pinch of tea, and there’s even a chance an elephant wanders by while you browse for pachyderm avatars carved from precious stones.

Sadar offers a wild, once-in-a-lifetime market experience.
