  • If the plants and trees, like ideal; If this is not the case, you can pass it long. They devoured us mosquitoes.

  • I visited this garden with two friends in March 2017. Despite a raging tropical downpour I found this very picturesque and interesting and fitting way. Definitely recommend getting a guide with 100 rupees each makes a ride of an hour dwelling on the most interesting plants which are unlikely, unless you're an expert, you'd be able to recognize in the midst of lush vegetation. Notable varieties of palms, the Majesty of ficus and the aroma of the spices. In conclusion a visit absolutely recommended.

  • Large and beautiful garden with a wide variety of plants. We didn't have the guide but I guess that's a plus. See for the giant circles, the talipot in flowers and large aisles lined with Palm trees. It is worth a visit but you may be disappointed if you expect to see rare species. It is a leisure park a botanical garden to do more. Go to stroll through the wide paths.
