A handcrafted plant kingdom, Thread Garden attracts tourists from all over the world, especially lovers of artisanal artifacts. Embroidered over the course of 12 years by a group of 50 enthusiasts using 60 million m (190 million ft) of thread, canvas, and wire, this small museum of handicrafts features hand-woven leaves, flowers, and buds--even the lawns and lotus ponds are embroidered. With no machinery or needle used at any stage, the garden aspired for a Guinness world record. Use the opportunity to purchase unique souvenirs and gifts. Opposite the boathouse in Ooty on North Lake Road, the garden is easily accessed by car.

  • This place is a mind boggling piece of art. I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of effort that must have been invested in it. The presentation can be a lot better to complement the amount of detail put into the display pieces. Still, at the cheap entrance price, I can't really complain.
  • Dam..Those flowers are awesome. Dont how they made it.. but they r cool.. they said, they created all those thread flowers are made by 10000 sq feet threads in 12yrs. Those who created this are Super cool. A difficult work to do this..Superb..
  • Another one of the most interesting place which must be visited during the visit is Thread Garden. Till the time we visited this place we just had various thought of this place which turnout to be completely opposite of what we thought. This place is just opposite of Ooty lake and though its in just in front of the one of the most visited place of Ooty you will find very few people visiting this place. Entrance fees to this place is about 50 Rs. This is most interesting place to visit. As we can see artificial garden of plants and lot of varieties of flowers woven by thread and that also without using needles. The work of artist is just amazing and so perfect. And interesting fact about this place is it took about 12 years and about 6 crore meters of embroidery thread to complete its collection what we can see today. At the end of this exhibition or place we find a shop selling work of artists. Its bit expensive but its worth spending few bucks for these unique piece of work, really worth spending for outstanding craftsmanship. Next to this Thread Garden they have small Botanical Garden where you will find few biologically modified trees few decades old and few varieties of grass and cactus. Out of which one of the interesting tree was 40 years old Banyan tree of just 1 feet height amazing.
  • Such a wonderful experience... A Must Visit in Ooty.... Just Opposite to Ooty Lake... Flowers made of colorful threads... This is a Flower Exhibition.... Amazing Creations... Beautiful Art... See the following creative art....
  • And if u want to buy homemade chocolates in cheap beside this garden itself u will find the chocolate shop.. Price 300/Kg Regarding the garden .. It's not the place if you want to enjoy or take some lovely pics. It's a place for art lovers. Appreciate the efforts of the 50 girls who spent their 12 years making those flowers.
