Pondicherry Botanical Gardens, Pondicherry

(1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Observe and inspect a wide variety of plant and animal life at Pondicherry Botanical Gardens. Originally established in 1826 by French colonists to test out crop cultivation in the region, the gardens have since grown into an informative center, with trees and shrubs labeled for easy identification. If you're traveling with children, they will enjoy the playground and toy train ride; keep your eyes peeled for the fossilized trees on the site. A small refreshment stand in the gardens serves snacks and drinks. To visit Pondicherry Botanical Gardens on your trip to Pondicherry, use our Pondicherry travel itinerary planner.
