Right under the Howrah bridge's eastern side, this market is nestled tightly. If you are claustrophobic then maybe, this is not your kind of space to venture in. But if you can brave the crowd, do walk into this space twice in a day; first in the early morning to see a fresh supply of flowers coming in and being... More

To best appreciate this place, get here early. Around 6am is a good time as the market starts at 4am. To got to it, drop off just before the Howrah bridge and there are stairs that lead down to the market. It's a good place to view the market from above. Make sure you wear good covered shoes, the place... More

My guide took me here, I could not have navigated this on my own, and I absolutely loved it. Nestled under the magnificent Howrah Bridge, this market is full to overflowing with flower sellers of all types, the colours and smells and activity is mind boggling, as well as the ice makers (to keep the flowers cool) and then there...

The place is a typical wholesale market found in India. Its dirty, noisy, bustling with people and is a huge market for flowers only. A visit to this place is not going to excite you if you are visiting this place purely for sight seeing. But if you have to get an essence of what a typical Indian market place... More

I've heard a lot about this market so took a car and driver to guide me through the maze. This is colorful but a bit intense and you really don't do this on your own. There are so many little vendors who actually live in little cubbies which line these allies all selling their creations as well as bundles of... More

An amazing area of countless flower arrangements; food being cooked on the street; people everywhere; and more flowers! This is a non-stop place that supplies flowers to most of the hotels and for many occasions...very tight spaces, but worth the effort!

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
