69. Gangtok Market

After a rather hectic day, my colleague wanted to me visit the Market.
I am not much into shopping and I don't like to be surrounded by crowds. 
When I explained my views, my colleague , a local official said, "Oh! But it is Gangtok Market!"

According to me, all markets are alike. However, I did not want her to feel bad and hence went with her. 

When I realized  the vehicles had 'no entry' in the market,  I felt good. 
The first impression was amazing.

To be able to walk freely in the market (for that matter on any road) was an experience in itself. 

Suddenly it started raining. Up came the umbrellas.

You can see how clean and how specious is the word within the market. It is also safe for women. 
If you get tired of walking, you can sit on these benches - take rest, talk, listen to music, consume food, just relax - whatever you want. 

I wish there were many more such markets in the country! 


  1. I am amazed. The streets have colourful tiles laid out. Last year my daughter had been there and enjoyed her stay. We can't dream of such a situation in our Country. The issue that hinders is the growing population.

  2. I had seen some pictures of this market for the first time just a few days ago. I think that I want to visit Sikkim, it seems so beautiful. :)

  3. I had visited Gangtok decades ago. What a change it has gone through!! Thanks for sharing!!!
