  • A wonderful park that's being maintained well for the past 50+ years.. Or so my guide said. The park is steep to descend and there are multiple photo spots spread throughout the park. There is a children's play area as well. Overall, if you admire flowers and scenic beauty do check out.
  • It's at the opposite direction of most of sight seeing places. So many avoid this park. But it must be very interesting for children. No sufficient parking space.
  • The garden is very pleasing. A lot of flowers are there. Good for walking. Good lawn. A nice place to spend some quiet time.
  • Good park to visit. It is maintained well. Took a lot of beautiful pics here.
  • This is private park. Good maintenance. Near ro kurinji andavar temple. Road to reach this park ia very tapper. Entry ticket is Rs 30.

Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.
