Lloyd's Botanical Garden, or Darjeeling Botanical Garden, is a botanical garden in Darjeeling in the Indian state of West Bengal.HistoryLloyd's Botanical Garden was established in 1878 when 40acre of land was acquired at Darjeeling to form a botanic garden as a distant annexe of the Calcutta Botanical Garden. The land was provided by William Lloyd, in whose name the botanical garden has been named.CollectionsThe Darjeeling Botanical Garden preserves several species of bamboo, oak, magnolia, arisaema, cotoneaster, wild geranium, and rhododendron — forest native plants of the Darjeeling Himalayan hill region, Sikkim region, and other neighbouring regions.

  • Very poor maintenance makes this place avoidable for the tourists. Its near the main market but you need to walk up and down a steep slope to reach. Nothing special.  more »
  • It is not actually recommended by me for you to visit here if you visit the padmaja naidu zoo. It is a great place to stroll around.  more »

  • A very beautiful and large place settled amidst of bustling town. Has wide range of beautiful flowers and plants. The house of cactus and flowers are placed in different spots. This place is very popular among morning walkers. The huge coniferous trees makes this place more beautiful.
  • A vast, expansive botanical garden right in the middle of the town. The Llyod Botanical Garden is a historic place and a huge collection of plants, trees, orchids, cactii and all other types of flora. Amazing place!
