Chor Bazaar for Old Bollywod Movie Posters
Chor Bazaar is one of the largest flea markets in India. Located in South Bombay, the market was originally known as Shor Bazaar which means a place full of noise.

One can buy old rotary phones, carved idols of Lord Ganesha, old Bollywood film posters, etc. before catching flights back home. However, tourists should bargain well and be very careful before buying anything from here as they can find plenty of imitation antiques.
