Mumbai's Legendary Chor Bazaar gets a Green Crown!!
Mumbai's Chor Bazaar, which literally means "thieves market", has a fascinating history that spans more than 150 years.
Apparently, it was originally called Shor Bazaar, meaning "noisy market", but "shor" became "chor" because of how the British mispronounced the word. Eventually, stolen goods started finding their way into the market, resulting in it living up to its new name! These days it's famous for antique and vintage items.
And now it has got a mosque which is 100 % powered by solar energy!!
