  • This place is a treasure for botany students. For others It is a place to seek peace and stroll through acres of lush greenery. The orchids were in full bloom in November when I visited. 1 star less as this place is hard to find. The approach road winds through a vegetable market and then a residential area.
  • journey to garden are bad. lots of smelly rubbish. garden are decent but with lots of rubbish and bad smell. herbs garden has no herb. dead mouse in pool. non moving water fountain with larva. saw bunch of kids smoking weed n got offered. not a good place to visit alone or with kids.
