This is a government centre housing a few variety of orchids but with typical apathy and neglect and no one to show you around or explain.

No one would have imagined that one could find 1000 varieties of Orchid in one place. Just colorful and fantastic place to be in. Spend time in the serenity and in amidst the bouquet of 1000 orchids.
