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.

This is not a place to buy flowers, it's a place to see the flower trade and commerce. Stay out of the way of the men hauling huge bags of flowers and watch as customers buy garlands and loose flowers and with porters to cart them off. This place is loud and crowded and hard to navigate, hence the four... More

a strange but beautiful place. not how a tourist attraction is supposed to look like. a big market where only flowers are sold. very colourful, no doubt. the train line through the market, at the same level, makes for a terrific perspective for photos.

Be amazed by the colourful, bustling sight of flowers everywhere & sellers/buyers checking wares. Street is crowded, esp when motorbikes/trucks try to pass thru. There are proper shops in inner lanes but didn't check them out.

This whole sale flower market is not meant for visitors especially girls & women because much like shopping in the malls, this place here is diametrically opposite. You may get foul smell, half naked men coming out of the bathing ghats and a stench which is not friendly. A paradise for flower lovers. The prices are a STEAL. Flowers here... More
