“Beautiful gardens in Dushanbe”

Botanical Garden and Zoo
Reviewed 17 August 2017

We visited the Botanical Gardens and were amazed at how large and varied they were. It is a great place to come to walk or sit in one of the covered pavilions. Lots of places for children to run and play. It was quite hot when we were there and we would have enjoyed it more if the temperature had been a bit cooler.

We have gone and taken family. It is well taken care of and beautiful. There is not much for a zoo besides some caged peacocks. The flowers are lovely and streams throughout the place. Lots of shade and walking areas. The price is great at 2 somoni (25cents) and because you pay a little it is never crowded. Sometimes wedding pics done here so you can see lavish dresses and sometimes other cultural events.

The botanical garden is world class. Tons of flowers and different species of trees and bushes. I wish there were a few more signs identifying the items.

I am feeling conflicted about the rating for these gardens. As far as botanical gardens are concerned giving it a score of 2 is quite high when one considers that a place like Kirstenbosch botanical gardens can't get more than 5.

However, it is a nice place to visit and there are many opportunities to find a quiet spot to rest in the shade with a book. I wouldn't say its a must see during a visit to Dushanbe, but if you have time to kill and want a peaceful place this is a good option (although Rudaki park also offers that). I did not go to the zoo and do not know where it is. So my review takes no consideration of that into account.

I went on a sunny Sunday afternoon and it was very busy. There were lots of married couples having their photos taken, which was entertaining.

It's well kept and a great place to visit. Amazing flowers and a great place to walk and have picnics. Needs more toilets available though.
