  • A beautifully designed and developed garden with plenty of flowers and trees. The whole place is well organized into various sections. The flowers are fully blossomed at this part of the season making the whole place so colorful. The tall trees, green lawns, flowering plants etc brings up the whole place. The variety of flowers, trees is good. The whole experience is wonderful amongst green and natural environment.
  • Located in the city itself, it is one of the major attractions. It is set on hills at different levels. On entering the garden itself you can start feeling the freshness in the air due to the abundance of green and at the gate itself, you are greeted by a small patch of bushes of colorful plants. Coming to the entire garden, it has various sub-sections such as the Japanese garden, glasshouse where you would find plants with colorful flowers such as hydrangeas, Italian Garden which in itself is huge, Foliage garden again a garden having a variety of colorful flowers and plants. Apart from this, there is also a big map of India created inside the garden just using bushes with different colored leaves which looks pretty amazing. All in all the place is amazing, peaceful and serene. The best part you can see is how clean the place is and how the serenity of nature is enhanced with all the cleanliness and maintenance.
