The garden has several different areas with lots of different plants. We saw locals enjoying the sun bathing on grass, tadpoles swimming, it's a very relaxing and fun place. The tropical plants domes were very interesting too. Free to visit. Definitely worth visiting.

With reluctance, we entered the botanical garden. But, upon getting inside... we were astonished to see the floral treat. From tiny to large, plain to colourful... just amazing variety of flowers. There is a nice restaurant also inside. Don't miss it!
