Pleasant few hours wandering around and enjoying the cool and calming gardens. Quick bus ride out from the city. Open from about 9.20am.

The gardens are lovely even in winter. We saw many new plant species, monkeys and birds as well. We visited June 15 and the restaurant was open and good. (there are vegetarian but not vegan options) Closed-toe walking shoes recommended for winter.
