  • Verdant greenery. Beautiful place for a morning walk! (Evening walks are not possible here as it shuts down too early). Very green and a little overrun with vegetation... Just the way I like it! Gives it a more natural feel than a perfectly manicured garden. Food and plastic items (including bottles) are not allowed inside, so do leave them in your car before entering. Oh and do not miss the Great Banyan Tree inside. Apart from that there are several other attractions as well, including the riverside avenue.
  • It's like walking through a forest on a beautiful path. The garden is insanely large and takes about 3 hours to completely go around it. It's cool and shady and very nice to just stroll along the concrete path. There are also lots of bugs, lizards ants (watch out for snakes). Going to the central tree takes a while but you can enjoy the environment while you're going there. A very beautiful place. Loved coming here.
