The Cloth Market is the long building in the center of the stone paved square. It's a wonderful structure on its own...and then when inside...you'll discover that it is filled with all the things you thought you might find for soulvenirs and keepsakes. If the weather is inclement, it's a good place to spend the afternoon without getting cold and wet. The things I like are the blue "peacocks's eye" pottery which has been becoming popular in the US (better selection in Cloth market, of course...and better prices). There are native costumes, crystal glasses, jewelry, and warm slippers. All sort of things to dazzle and delight.
The interior of the market is set up like stalls on either side of the length of the building. Each stall is a different vendor. One might have hand bags, the next dishes...and so forth.

    The title of the market is deceiving but still seductive. A must see for sure!

      I agree. If I learned why it's named Cloth... I've forgotten. I always wander through, but would rather buy in small shops and better yet, from the artist or craftsman.
