Fodor's Expert Review Rabindra Sarani

North Kolkata Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Head up Rabindra Sarani from Lal Bazaar Road (near the West Bengal Tourist Office) and you'll soon enter an Islamic world. Women walk by in burqas (long, black, tent-shaped robes), their eyes barely visible behind veils. Men sit on elevated platforms selling Bengali kurtas (shirts) and pants, and colorful lungis and white dhotis (both are wraps) for men. Other vendors sell vials of perfume created from flowers. Rabindra Sarani is interesting all the way to Chitpur Road.
