Nestled under the magnificent Howrah Bridge, this market is full to overflowing with flower sellers of all types, the colours and smells and activity is mind boggling, as well as the ice makers (to keep the flowers cool) and then there...

The place is a typical wholesale market found in India. Its dirty, noisy, bustling with people and is a huge market for flowers only. A visit to this place is not going to excite you if you are visiting this place purely for sight seeing. But if you have to get an essence of what a typical Indian market place... More

I've heard a lot about this market so took a car and driver to guide me through the maze. This is colorful but a bit intense and you really don't do this on your own. There are so many little vendors who actually live in little cubbies which line these allies all selling their creations as well as bundles of... More

An amazing area of countless flower arrangements; food being cooked on the street; people everywhere; and more flowers! This is a non-stop place that supplies flowers to most of the hotels and for many occasions...very tight spaces, but worth the effort!

The Flower Market is a wholesale one, catering to the fresh flower needs of the entire Kolkata city. It’s stretches from under the Howrah Bridge to a little beyond the Mallick Ghat. Flanked with flowers shops on either side, the market is a flower lover’s heaven

Visit this place early morning and wear comfortable cloths as the roads are muddy.If you are interested in street photography we can have many moments and faces to capture.Its a wholesale flower market.So if you are a flower lover you can buy some flower for your drawing room in a afordale price.

If you go there early in the morning, you'll find so many flours that are coming and being sold and going to every direction of Kolkata. Though you will find flours all through the day but the best time is early in the morning. If you want to buy flour in cheap rate, you should visit this place.
