Kolkata’s Wholesale Flower Market

Mullick Ghat (steps down to the river) is in the center of Kolkata’s Flower Market. Along the banks of the Hooghly River ( tributary of the Ganges River),

hundreds of merchants, in their stalls, fashion floral arrangements for resale or they sell loose flowers. Many of the workers live in makeshift shacks with their family, bathing in the river. The market is a riot of sound and color. This was the highlight of our trip to Kolkata. Enjoy the following still shots.
