We arrived here around 9.30am, it was definitely an eye opener! I was very concerned about what to expect, and was quite nervous about the experience on the drive there. I think the best time to arrive would be around 6am in the morning, whilst there were still a lot of flowers you could tell that a lot of business... More

I'm not sure why everybody has rated this so well... I guess it must have been a series of bad circumstances on my visit. First of all, the taxi driver was not willing to drive me to the bridge- which in retrospect I understand with all that traffic- which left me wandering around completely helpless and alone cause I knew...

We visited in the morning, our guide walked us through the market. Initially we stopped at the River to view the Howrah Bridge and people bathing in the river. To see so many flowers in one place, the people making them into garlands, and porters carrying the baskets of highly coloured garlands on their heads was wonderful. The locals were... More

Even if you're not there to buy flowers, this is an overwhelmingly busy, beautiful, fascinating and extraordinary place. It is in its unique way a giant informal temple dedicated to flowers of every colour and shape, often made into marvellously festive garlands for ceremonial purposes. Make sure you get a guide to take you through the rabbit warren of alleys... More

Malik Ghat has stood proud over ages, with little development of infrastructural aspects. However, it still remains the best place to buy flowers at wholesale rates if you have any special or festive occasions - please make sure you're there by six o' clock in the morning though.

This a awesome place for buying flowers. You can get variety of flowers in a very cheap price or wholesale price bracket. Best time for visit this place is morning. It's near Howrah bridge. All flower lovers and photographers must visit this place, you gonna love it.

it is for me a Kolkata must see - be prepared for the usual squeez , but it is worth it - flowers over flowers, literally heaps of it, chains of it, arrangements and baskets full of it, a feast for the eyes go early morning

The flower market, the name itself says everything that can be possibly said about the place. As you enter, the flood of the colours blind your senses. It has all kinds of flowers, some which I had never seen before. The pathway is a spongy route of you trampling on leaves and the smell can be invigorating. However, lurking in... More

This is specially a wholesale markets for flower for kolkata. Maximum flowers supplied from this place to kolkata. You need to go early morning so you can see lots of sellers. Flowers ..colors. This place is little bit crowdy but you will get different experience.
