What to expect

The rail terminus for the East Indian railway is at Howrah. An estimated two million people go in and out of Howrah station each day. To get to Kolkata, they walk or drive through Howrah bridge or take local ferries. For millions of people, Howrah bridge represents the quintessential image of Kolkata, the first thing they see when they arrive there. The area around Howrah station has grown into a self-contained mini-universe, catering to the needs of a huge floating population.

Howrah station and Howrah bridge are a real-life spectacle not to be missed by any visitor to Kolkata. And what better way to experience this spectacle than by ferry and foot, joining the daily commuters, vacationing families, railway porters, tea vendors, and fruit sellers. At the base of the Howrah bridge, on the Calcutta side, is the city’s bustling wholesale flower market. Flowers are an essential part of life in the city, they are bought not just for temple prayers but also for wedding decorations, events and festivals. Walking through the flower market is a colorful and sweet experience.
