  • nice place for morning walk, peaceful, silent and calm.. the great banyan tree is a must see if you haven't yet. varieties of plants and trees and birds can be found here, good place for photography. overall a nice place to visit.
  • Very good and peaceful place to visit. But you can see lacks of management here. You are going to know practically the "Earth is round" here . There are no readable signboard all are in very bad condition . I wandered about an hour only for searching in "The Great Banaya Tree" . You may also get disappointed when you know that you will have to watch Banyan tree from distance . But you must go there.
  • Too far off from the main city. Good place for bird watching and photography. Pre-wedding shoots can be done here and the locale provides nice backgrounds for pictures.
  • Plenty of staff but seemingly little by way of care & attention being applied to this once beautiful gardens. It's a short taxi ride from central kolkata (less than 200 rupees) and near to Howrah station. Worth a visit just to see the great Banyan tree which unfortunately is now fenced off but this ranks definitely as a former glorious sight!
  • Lungs of the city of Howrah. Ideal for a jog in the morning. Infuses a breath of fresh air, perfect to start your day. The walk along the rive shore is a must. And not to forget the world's largest banyan tree....
