Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
A handcrafted plant kingdom, Thread Garden attracts tourists from all over the world, especially lovers of artisanal artifacts. Embroidered over the course of 12 years by a group of 50 enthusiasts using 60 million m (190 million ft) of thread, canvas, and wire, this small museum of handicrafts features hand-woven leaves, flowers, and buds--even the lawns and lotus ponds are embroidered. With no machinery or needle used at any stage, the garden aspired for a Guinness world record. Use the opportunity to purchase unique souvenirs and gifts. Opposite the boathouse in Ooty on North Lake Road, the garden is easily accessed by car.

  • You can definitely appreciate the art(no needles used) but you can cover the place in 10-15mintues max. It's a silk thread garden. The flowers and plants look very realistic. At the end you can buy some show pieces made from the same technique but they cost about 700/- minimum.
  • Amazing thread work by artists. Artificial garden featuring flowers, plants & lawns crafted from thread, canvas & wire. Its a star attraction. 30rs entry fee per head but its worth it.
