Empress Market

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageAnother majestic building from the British era. This market was constructed on a demolished execution site. It is another fine example of British/Gothic architecture. It was built in 1890, to mark the silver jubilee of the reign of Queen Victoria.The building itself contains four identical galleries, a large central atrium, and a 140-ft high elegant clock tower (whose clock no longer functions).As a marketplace, Empress Market attracts large crowds of customers from all around the city, as everything of general everyday use, especially foodstuff, is available at quite low prices. You can see how the locals interact, haggle and buy. But the market proves just as satisfying for those interested in ancient architecture and monuments.No tickets. Feel free to roam about the vicinity, in and out, as many times as you wish.
