A photographer’s paradise, the colorful Mallick Ghat Flower Market is open virtually around the clock and offers an incredible selection of flowers and garlands for sale. The huge market stretches from a little beyond the Mallick Ghat all the way to the Howrah Bridge and is flanked with flower shops on either side.

Flowers are sold by the kilo and each morning at daybreak, wholesalers arrive with huge consignments that are auctioned out to the sellers, many of which live in informal structures on the bank of the river. The market is easy to reach by bus or taxi.
