"Just the location for clicking pics"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's nothing compared to the botanical garden of Ooty but it's like totally different locations from botanical garden for clicking some awesome pics and that's why you must visit but it is in Coonoor so not much need to give it special visit.

"Best place to see if you low rose species"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 6, 2016
This is a must visit place, if you love flowers, a large area to walk and watch beautiful rose flowers. Truly to the statement, India's largest rose garden. IT carries thousand over varieties of flowers.
Watch out : its not necessary the names below the rose plant is the species name, it can also be the name of the person who donate the plant.
Surprisingly being in the world of rose, there was no smell of rose, because of the medicine they spray over the plants to keep it fresh and last long( this is the sad part).
A good place for kids to spend some quality time.

Scenic place with lots of beautiful roses accompanied by lovely garden. Huge variety of roses with Botanical names are displayed. The place also offers nice view of the valley. This is a great place to unwind alone or friends or family. Good place for school kids and flora enthusiast.

"Nothing much to do here, waste of time"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Apr 21, 2016
I am not impressed with this Rose Garden. Garden is not well-maintained. Looks barren. Many types of roses you can find. But most of them have dried out. Better take a short look and come back if you don't have much time.

"Great place to spend a lots of time"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 22, 2016
This place was awesome with great collection of Roses. One can spend almost half a day if they are good lovers for Roses. We have spent almost three hours in this Rose Garden during day time. The situation was sporadic. There was a cool breeze of weather, green grass land across the view of eye, in between beautiful blossoming Roses with rich essence of their lives in it. It was worth taking time for this place.
