Dr. J. S. Sarkaria National Cactus and Succulent Botanical H.U.D.A. Garden and Research Centre is home to thousands of cacti and succulent plants of amazingly different shapes and sizes. There are many rockeries and several greenhouses. A botanist-manager and several gardeners take care of this natural treasure . Quite a few of the current care-takers were trained by the garden’s founder-curator, Dr. J. S. Sarkaria (1919-2004; surgeon, painter, plant-lover and founder of the National Cactus and Succulent Society). It was due to Dr. Sarkaria’s earnest and loving efforts over many years that this garden—later re-named to honour his memory—came into being.Put Sarkaria Cactus Garden and other Panchkula attractions into our Panchkula trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
Many botanical writings – including a book on this garden – of Dr J. S. Sarkaria are also available on-line. http://kssarkaria.org/cactus/cactus-book2.html

Sarkaria Cactus Garden Reviews
Good place to visit. It is located in sector 5 of Panchkula adjoining city park. There is a ticket of 10₹ per person. Once you get in you will see a lot of cactus varieties as well as succulents. There are some rooms in which you will see a lot of succulents but you are not allowed to go inside. You can watch them only from outside. There is a garden also where you can picnic with family or friends.
Amazing experience Uncountable number of 🌵 species. Well maintained with affordable entry fees. This place also attracts lots of birds. One of the best gardens in Panchkula. Must visit for family. There are few plants which are kept in their natural environment. Less water and arid desert condition.
