Just below the Howrah Bridge on the banks of Hooghly River at Mallick Ghat a unique more than 125 years old flower market is held every morning. This is the largest wholesale flower market in eastern India. The Ghat was built by Ram Mohun Mallick (son of Nayan Chand) in the year 1855. The market starts around 4 am in the morning and flower sellers from all the adjacent areas of Kolkata come with different types of flowers. The market is chaotic, filthy and overcrowded, but still a unique experience all together. This market becomes more lively and vibrant during festive and marriage seasons.Different types of flowers from marigold to lotus and from red rose to yellow roses are easily available here. If Visitors are trying to find out garlands, do not go elsewhere, just come down here at early morning.
