  • excellent. must visit this place An innovative and unique Indoor Display Tourism Project Located by the side of North Lake Road, opposite the Boat House in Ooty, is a marvel of creation, the Artificial Plant Kingdom – The Thread Garden. A magnificent display of flowers, plants and lawns fabricated entirely from thread, canvas and wire awaits you here at the Thread Garden, Ooty! A stunning spectacle to behold, it is the end result of the untiring work of nearly 12 Years of Mr. Antony Joseph and an enthusiastic group of workers. Absolutely everything is done by hand and no machinery or needle is used at any stage. Many artificial models of plants and flowers, creepers, climbers, lawns, lotus ponds etc. are kept in the most natural ambience. The whole creation is made using our self invented technology of 'Four Dimensional hand-wound Embroidery', unknown hitherto without needles or machinery. Developed and perfected through many scientific and artistic observations and experiments and consuming thread measuring a mind boggling 60 million metres in length, Thread Garden is made challenging a machine like perfection with the skillful effort of 50 specially trained artists. More than 400 different shades and plain natural coloured embroidery threads have been used to create such a colour spectrum in order to get natural colour combinations. Painting or printing has never been entertained and an embroidery system is followed Designs, colours and shades are adopted as far as possible from nature and are designed making use of different natural coloured embroidery threads. Designing of different filament structures in different species of flowers are brought out of threads. Since machines or even needles are not involved, the operation demands long time and intense labour. "
  • Great efforts put together. Visit if there's ample of time, not exactly a place for you if you travel alot
  • Another fabulous place for travellers in Malamppuzha and is located close to the Fantasy Park. It has huge collection a plants and flowers that are artificially made by hand using threads woven together.Must visit....
  • Good place of creativity all threads constitute 6 crore meters woven into garden by handicaps. Some saleable pieces are also there min price 500 Rs . Adult entry fee is 20 Rs. It is gery nice.
  • Nice artificial garden. Could benefit from better lighting, though.
