Market life

February 09, 2014  •  1 Comment

I managed to grab a couple of shots from the market area early this morning, it's great to wander around and see the sites, even better when the day is just starting. The weather is still pretty miserable but it doesn't matter too much in the narrow streets.

A temple amongst the trees in the market, there are temples of all sizes on pretty much every street.

 They are extremely elaborately decorated inside and out, lots of bright colours, gold paint and carved granite.

The shops spill out on to the road, there's such a lot of life squeezed in to these narrow streets.

Toy shop. An open door offers a glimpse of the chaotic nature of shops here.

The chemist shop.

The noodle maker.

A doorway in the old market.

That's a quick view of the market, more over the coming days I'm sure. Next post will have a couple of shots from outside the town.
