the wholesale market is huge and the masses of flowers on display overwhelm the senses. Walking through the crowded alleyways is an experience in itself. Don't get lost! Unfortunately the scents of the flowers is overpowered by the local pollution. The view of the bridge...More

Yes, there are flowers of many colors but don't miss the ghat just behind the flower market. At dawn, it is already busy with men bathing in the river, brahmins performing rituals, barbers at work, and wrestlers practicing. From here, you can also stroll to...More

This was not on my "to do" list, I went there by accident and discovered one of the most interesting places in Kolkata. The flower market is huge and seems chaotic but at the same time it is somewhat organized by types of flowers. It...More

The flower market is all hustle and bustle! It is truly an example of a working enterprise. You can’t buy any flowers individually, as these are sold only to wholesalers. Here you’ll see lots of marigolds, but also roses, lotus flowers and some others I...More

I could not believe the colors, flowers, smells and rawness of this event. It was a wonderful way to spend 2 hours walking through hundreds of flower vendors. The variety is amazing as you head to the inside and outside markets.
