  • This place is good for photographers. better to visit during morning. please is too congested therefore required much attention.  more »
  • Topic: Malik Ghat Flower Market place: Kolkata, West Bengal, India, Asia title: fascinating ID: 444222540 I visited this place at peak times in the morning (the guides often do visit in times of low traffic to not frighten off tourists!). The density of the crowd and the abundance of goods defy description. Police officers had to channel the crowd to avoid congestion. I was bewitched by this overabundance of colors and perfumes. Experience extraordinary, typical of Kolkata. Not recommended for the agoraphobes.

  • Colorful mess and very full of market at the foot of the bridge. Visit as early as possible (around 6:30) then it's still reasonably clean.

  • This was one of the first places I had descended upon when I first got a digital camera. An amazing place for photography. The best tours are obviously the ones I lead ;-) Check Calcutta Photo Tours for details. Could be muddy and slushy in the monsoons so be aptly prepared.
  • Excellent collection of flowers. But I went there only to see the beauty of Howrah Bridge from bellow the Ganga Ghat, u can't forget it. But the road is dirty. Please wear good Shoes.
  •   A city with more than three hundred years of history is running with another 125 years old history. Those who live in Kolkata for long years or visit Kolkata for travel purpose, one place they must have seen, the Rabindra Setu (bridge). Is it sounded odd? In normal term it is called Hoogly Bridge or Howrah Bridge. Now you are comfortable enough with these normal terms I guess. Just below the Howrah Bridge on the banks of Hoogly 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.
  • Asia's largest flower market. you’ll get all kind of flower from here. It's a little messy but It's awesome.
  • Biggest flower market in Kolkata. You will feel the old Kolkata over here.
