I would recommend that you avoid the place on a Friday afternoon when the whole town seems to visit, making it difficult to walk anywhere and shattering the peace... More

The setting of The Botanical Gardens is lovely and the grounds are quite extensive for walking around but there were not a lot of flowers in bloom during our visit. This may have been the time of year but we still enjoyed a stroll around.

Nice place to step out of city hustle. Good place to have a picnic. If you can carry something to eat, its the right place to sit, eat & relax.

We loved our visit as we met so many local India people and visitors. The gardens were well maintained and pleasant to walk around but not oustanding, just a good way to spend an hour or so.
