Agra’s wholesale flower market ranks among the largest in the country. Hundreds of dealers descend at first light, tipping huge piles of marigolds, roses and lotus flowers into vibrant heaps – a superb photo opportunity. The vendors love posing next to their giant sacks of blooms.
A trip to the densely packed bazaar district nearby is also a must. You’ll see stalls specializing in necklaces made of bank notes (used as wedding gifts), a street given over to marble deities, and an auction devoted solely to the sale of betel leaves. Many past clients have told us they regard the hours spent wandering around these jam packed lanes as the highlight of their entire trip.
