Most amazing places: Market has 'serious flower power'
Malik Ghat is Kolkata's largest flower market; some say even west-Asia's biggest. It sits on a tributary of the sacred Ganges.
No-one really seems to know about it, but it has risen again from the ruins.
The city itself has more than 15 million inhabitants and the market is always frenetic, so this has to be a place of serious financial flower power.
The market is more than 125 years old and every morning, from about 3am, up to 2000 sellers arrive in the market area that lies in the shadow of the Howrah Bridge which spans the Hooghly River.
