Bepin Behari Ganguly Street, or B.B. Ganguly Street, often known as Bow Bazar Street or Bowbazar Street is an east-west road in central Kolkata, capital of the Indian state of West Bengal.


B.B Ganguly Street runs from the Sealdah station (one of the two principal rail stations in the city) in the eastern limit to B.B.D. Bagh is the northern side.


The multitude of commuters who deport train at Sealdah (from Kolkata Suburban Railway) use this road to reach B.B.D. Bagh, the central business district of the city. The easternmost portion of the road (just after its start from Sealdah) is very congested due to the location of a vegetable wholesale market, as a result many commuters resort to walking the road to B.B.D. Bagh instead of using the bus.


The road is one-way, traffic runs from the direction of Sealdah towards B.B.D. Bagh. Significant intersections include intersections with Amherst Street, College Street, Chittaranjan Avenue, Rabindra Sarani.
