Photo Essay: Bengaluru Flower Market, K R Market

By Rashmi Gopal Rao

As mentioned in my previous posts, visiting flower markets in any city is my favorite and always on my ‘to do’ list.  Last month, I decided to visit the flower market in namma Bangalore, as it was quite sometime since I visited last.  Well, I was in for a pleasant surprise as the market had grown bigger and was bursting with flowers of all kinds including some really exotic varieties.  With more and more vendors now, the place was jam packed with literally ‘carpets’ of colourful blossoms.  Located in the bustling K R market, the place is a popular haunt with not only wholesalers and retailers but also with photgraphers and tourists too.  A market with plenty of photo opportunities, it is a great chance to experience the native culture and pulse of the city.  Here are some captures.
