Kolkata Flower Market

Kolkata's Mallik Ghat Flower Market, tucked away next to the Hooghly river, attracts more than 2,000 sellers each day. It contains more than a century of history. The market, known to be the largest of its kind in terms of sales in Asia, is bustling with activity, luring customers with its myriad colours, the fragrance of jasmine and roses and a breathtaking view of the iconic Howrah bridge. Vendors, their bodies draped with garlands of marigold, move around, trying to tempt customers into a making a purchase.  The experience here is a ballet of floral chaos and a glorious mixture of rich color and culture.
