  • This is an artificial garden which have various types of flowers and plants made of thread. These skillfully hand-made flowers look like real once. Tremendous efforts are taken by artist for this. It's actually an excellent piece of artwork, however some people, specially youngsters will find it boring and not worth watching for the entry fee they pay for. But frankly, the entry fees is not much as that much is must for the artist to survive. So it's okay to go n watch.
  • All the flowers and plants in this artificial garden is hand woven with threads. They look like real life things. The owner has a Guinness World Record. A definitely place to visit if your going to the Boat House along with women esp older women. It is right opposite Boat House. The place could be well lit with much more powerful lighting.
  • The Artificial Plant Kingdom – The Thread Garden. A magnificent display of flowers, plants and lawns fabricated entirely from thread, canvas and wire. It is the end result of the untiring work of nearly 12 Years of Mr. Antony Joseph and an enthusiastic group of workers. Absolutely everything is done by hand and no machinery or needle is used at any stage. Located by the side of North Lake Road, opposite the Boat House in Ooty, is a marvel of creation.
  • Very unique concept 50 tribal women worked for 12 years to create wonderful art work Very realistic and enchanting
  • 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.
