If one looks below the Howrah Bridge, at Mallick Ghat on the banks of River Hooghly, they will see the largest wholesale flower market of east India. This 125-year-old market opens at 4 am and sees brisk business as everyone - from flower merchants to people in search of a garland for their puja at home - comes here in droves. From roses to marigold to lotus, there is a huge variety available. The market extends from under the Howrah Bridge to the Mallick Ghat. It is lined with flower shops on either side and presents a surreal view. Flowers from this market are not only supplied to almost all important functions and events in the city but also exported to Europe.
