Flower Market


The flower market is on the first floor of a building right behind the vegatable market. On your own risk you have to climb the wet stairs because the whole floor is wet upstairs. Not the nicest flowermarket I have ever seen, but the most lively one indeed. Simple farmers come here and sell their flowers at the kilo to handicrafts man making those beautiful flower garlands that women are wearing in their hair, every day with fresh flowers.

This man showed me personally the flower that he was selling and also here he gave me this flower, after his personal posed photo with a big smile, I took this one in fully action selling to a good customer.

Enjoy the explosion of light, the Tamil energie ! Pitty you miss the smell, the noise .... imagine....

Note that in Tamil Nadu everything is exponential, sweet is too sweet, spicy is too spicy, hospitlaty is so familiar ... they call you immediatly brother, light is an explosion here, that's the real Tamil Nadu.
