  • A must visit place if you’re in Ooty. The gardens have a terraced layout and consist of several lawns with flowering plants, ponds with lilies, beds of flowers and fern.

  • Its a place with picturesque views. Its lush green everywhere spread across acres of land. It is one of the favourite tourist spots and crowded most of the times. However you can find various spots to click some amazing pictures. Nice place for picnics. You can also buy plants out there.
  • It is a very big garden yet well maintained. There is entry fee of Rs 50 for adults and Rs 30 for kids and additional charges if you carry Dslr. There are variety of flower with green lush around. One can spend quality time and kids will enjoy too. There is a glass house filled with lovely flowers . A great picturesque place. It's good place for a walk too. You can also witness a very old tree trunk which is assumed to be thousands of years old.
