Pune - Phule Market
Mahatma Phule Market, also known as Mandai, is centrally situated in the Pune city. Due its convenient location, it is often used for conferences, meetings and starting point for the Ganesh festival processing.
It is a huge structure made of stone and is well-known locally for supplying fresh fruits, vegetables and articles for puja and other rituals. The unique structure of the market supports entry-point from eight sides which directly lead to the center of the market.
More than 526 stalls are scattered in and around the market which sells a variety of items. Even with all this variety, particular items are sold only on particular locations.
Reasonable pricing of the items and opportunity of bargaining makes it a favorite purchasing location for the local public. The market is packed with crowds on weekends.
Besides the market, there is Tulsi-Baug Temple which has the idol of Lord Rameshwar.
