When you visit Ooty, the first thing you will be asked to visit is the botanical gardens. Once inside, be prepared for a very long walk. You may be able to recognise the famous tree” out here where songs for many Indian films have been shot. It is an ideal place to relax in the lap of nature (Never mind the crowd)

The Botanical Garden is maintained by the Horticulture Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu. A wide variety of exotic and ornamental plants adorn this garden. There is also a beautiful Italian floral garden and for those who simply want to relax

"A beautiful garden and an eco-friendly atmosphere" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Today
Who ever visiting Ooty, this is one of the best place to spend your evening. Make sure you are going around all the park instead of getting tired of walking and sitting on the ground.

"Nice park where you have to walk a lot" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 4 days ago
A must see in Ooty. Be prepared to walk and walk and walk. There is drinking water facility and nice walk ways. Don't expect anything great in this garden, it's just a big park.

"Absolutely incredible during spring" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Absolutely wonderful, truly the highlight of my trip. The gardens are large and divided well. The highlight was the orchid exhibit, which is surprisingly well done (as good as the orchid house in Washington, DC). I went in January, after a hard Winter, and most of the trees were bear. I am sure in the spring, it's absolutely incredible.

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Very good park, we visited in the 2nd week of December. Not much of rush during this time. Garden is well maintained but flowers were less. Kids will enjoy playing in the ground. Take a ball with you so that you can enjoy with them.

"Full of trees and flowers" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It was nice visiting botanical garden in Ooty, it a massive garden in which you can have a look over different species of trees, flowers, grasses. Some of the trees are very old about 100s of year ago, its one of the biggest garden I have ever seen in my life.

"Awesome garden but parking charge is more" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
All the garden is awesome but the whole experience is ruined by the locals in the area. They charge 60 bucks for a parking no matter where you park they have paid parking lots, but charge you no matter where you park. The cops are with the fellows as well food any where nearby is not worth for that price. Enjoy the garden, get a good parking spot worth your money avoid the nearby restaurants.
