The multiple fragrances and bright colours testify to the many varieties of fresh flowers that are offered every day. Jasmines, tuberoses, gladioli, queen daisies, amaranths, chrysanthemums, Indian roses are sold by the kilo. Petals and buds are gathered in baskets, and bouquets are placed on the stalls to be placed in vases or floral compositions intended for tourists. Cut flowers are also traditionally threaded on garlands or necklaces. These flowers are used in particular for the puja, the ceremony of offering and adoration to Hindu deities, both in temples and in houses where altars are installed. The flower offered is chosen according to the deity honoured during the ritual. They are also used as ornaments during religious feasts, festivals and weddings.
