Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / The Nilgiris District / Ooty (Udhagamandalam) / Thread Garden
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.

It was really worth a visit although to really appreciate it you need to examine the exhibits closer and in better lighting. It is sad that such exquisite art work has not received the attention it deserves.Very unique! I'm seeing something like this for the first time ever. The intricacy of each flower shocked me.
What a creativity! Pure skill!! Hats off and Kudos to the people involved in this. It was worth visiting this place.
