The Botanical Garden in Ooty is beautiful place to look around but nothing exceptional about the place. The Garden in itself is huge. It's clean and well maintained but I was disappointed by the variety of plants they have. It is a lovely garden but fails to impress as a Botanical Garden.

Its one of the standard stops in ooty worth spending a couple of hours there. Flower show is popular during specific seasons. Is crowded all along? anyway worth a trip there.

It was nice to visit the Botanical Garden in Ooty. Children also enjoyed. The garden is quite spaces and had good number of flowers of many spices. I did not relish the heavy parking cost near this public place, as this was very pinching.
