The Malik Ghat flower market is a microcosm of the delights and disgusts of India for tourists. I come down strongly on the side of delight. It is a wholesale market doing millions of rupees of trade a day and employing thousands of people in...More
This place is full of flowers and the making of arrangements and garlands for daily worship in homes and weddings( it was wedding season when I visited). All the daily flower delivery door to door (homes) retail people packed the place

I think it's most days, we went in the morning and had a pre booked guide from our tour company...I am sure your hotel could provide someone. While it was very pleasant and I am sure you could wander alone a guide a and driver for a day or a half day, would be much easier.
we entered near the river and walked through over the bridge (no photos allowed on bridge and we did get heckled there) then back on the ferry ...about 1.5 hours ..then you could go somewhere else after.
The market isn't that big but the people are friendly there. Do go it would be a shame to miss it.
