Beautiful place

One of the places we visited while in Ooty. This is beautifully maintained and a treat to watch. You should go ahead and take a look even if you are not a nature lover ...

A popular hangout for people visiting Ooty, Yet not offering much as you cannot access more than 60% of the open area. Yes if you are tired of walking, want to sit and relax a while it is a good haunt. Lots of shopping around especially if you are looking for Ooty apples, Eucalyptus Oil and some chocolates.

Spread over 50 acres, the gardens are quite extensive and extremely well maintained with beautiful landscaping. Gardens have lush green lawns and a vast variety of exotic and indigenous shrubs, ferns, trees, herbal,bonsai and flowering plants. The sight is truly relaxing and soothing to the eyes. Well worth a visit...

The garden is robust with floral beauty. It is well maintained of course, with tourists not allowed to cross certain areas to preserve natural beauty. It is always a crowded places which even attracts foreign tourists.

The garden is huge. Unfortunately we were tired so didn't went till the end of the garden but the play area was huge. Nice place for kids with lots of variety of flowers. In the city center to advice to by walk and very near to main shopping market.

Its a huge garden in ooty. Variety of plants and flowers. Definitely a must visit place of ooty. Entry ticket is 20 INR. Better keep min 4 hrs for this place. You need atleast this much time to cover the complete garden. As per local, the best time is april-may because of flower bloom. Then also enjoyable in any season.... More

One can spend a whole day here. If you rush through then you can miss a lot and also tire yourself out faster and the gardens are undulating.
