    It’s a huge market I spent 5 hours there . The villagers come from the surrounding villages to sell their products. Lots of unusual handcrafted product . Loved to bargain with the locals. It’s a nice experience you can’t afford to miss !! Try the street food specially the fried fish it was Awsome. Highly recommended
