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.

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.

I accompanied my wife on a business trip to India in September of 2012. While she was in meetings one day I decided to trek out with our driver and see the flower market that was high on the list of attractions to see while in Kolkata. To be honest I have no idea how to rate this place. it... More

Visiting Kolkata during the Durga Puja is always a memorable occasion; this time we wanted to do something different........so one morning (day of Panchami), my husband and I woke early and took off to Howrah Bridge, under which this sprawling wholesale flower market is situated. The sheer buzz yet high level of organization here left us at a loss for... More

Great opportunity for photos. Lots of colour and activity. Get there early in the morning to see the most flowers. Close to the bridge and station too.
