It is the very old botanical garden of Mauritius. It was made in the memory of independence of Mauritius.

But worth for visit. Good place for visit.
What a magical botanical garden! All those beautiful species mainly from tropics, Asia and Africa, South America. There grounds are very interesting. It is worth to take a one hour guided tour, and then get lost in the jungle of paths and plants for hours. The parking is free.
