Right under the Howrah bridge's eastern side, this market is nestled tightly. If you are claustrophobic then maybe, this is not your kind of space to venture in. But if you can brave the crowd, do walk into this space twice in a day; first...More

An amazing area of countless flower arrangements; food being cooked on the street; people everywhere; and more flowers! This is a non-stop place that supplies flowers to most of the hotels and for many occasions...very tight spaces, but worth the effort!
