Selling chickens at Siti Khadijah market

Here is a second photo taken at Pasar Besar (big market) Siti Khadijah in Kota Bharu. In the main building, there is a large central open space with many stalls. This nearly circular place is surrounded by 3-4 stories where one finds hundreds of stalls selling a wide variety of merchandise. Lots of batik for example. The roof high above the open space lets the light get in and the above stories provide many interesting points of view over the stalls below. Most of these stalls offer a colourful variety of exotic fruits and vegetables, and some others specialize in plain chicken or else. The vendors, mostly women, are modestly but colourfully dressed. All these things combine and make it a great place for some photos!
