  • A very nice place to visit once in a lifetime. I liked the greenery of this place. There are many seating cement concrete blocks - I mean chair type to be seated. The landscape garden is beautifully designed. There is a place to buy flower and veg seeds inside this place. Since this place is covered with natural greenery, you feel so peaceful here. The garden is well maintained by the concerned team. This place is very clean and avoid time to spend with your near and dear ones
  • A must visit place for every traveller who are stepped into ooty. Kept very clean and beautiful Big and have rare species of plants and trees. A good place for your children Many have skipped the upper garden, i insist you all to visit the hilltop garden. Very beautiful and a different experience than the rest of the garden. As its very big i feel drinking water facility should be provided
  • One of the beautiful places i have ever been to. Wanted to spend more time but couldn't. I would love to go again. If you're a nature lover, you will enjoy this place. Great collection of plants..Great place to spend time
  • Good place to visit in Ooty. Though there isn't any activity you can do here, its worth visiting as you get to see many well decorated areas. The place is well maintained and is considerably big. There are few parts having steps to climb so if you are avoiding that then some parts might be out of your reach. There is an entry fee of around Rs. 30 per person and additional Rs. 40 or so if you are carrying a still camera. No charges for mobile phone cameras.
  • The Gardens have around a thousand species, both exotic and indigenous, of plants, shrubs, ferns, trees, herbal and bonsai plants.In the center of the Gardens lie a fossilized tree trunk many years old. The Gardens consist of several lawns with flowering plants, ponds with lilies, beds of flowers and ferns laid out in an Italian style, several plots of flowering plants, a variety of medicinal plants. children will love to visit this place, it will be a educational tour, it is very neat and clean place.
