"Good and beautiful place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Awesome view when a small Rain appears and best to view the place during evenings. It is a very beautiful place and you should have a lot of patience, as it is a very big place. I strongly suggest not to visit this place after having a heavy meal. Like every other place in Ooty this garden, camera entry cost is more than that of a human. It is quiet in the center of the city. I strongly suggest to see the rates from place to place near the auto stand before taking one, otherwise you will be looted.

The total number of types of Roses are just mind blowing! If you are lucky to see then when they are in bloom is a marvellous sight to behold for a lifetime! The walk in the garden is a pleasant experience and will make you forget all your worries and enjoy the bounties of nature and the sheer variety of Roses will definitely make you happier and better person when you step out!

"Overall a good place if you have good patience"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It is designed so beautifully and it is a place to see entire city at a one view. Like any other place in Ooty, it also has an entry fee which is less than that for a camera (dslr). Nice place during evening that is the time which we visited. Carrying an umbrella is a must. The place looks very good in a light rain. It is open till 6:30. Have lot of energy because a very large place to walk and see. Overall it is a good place, having a good camera and an umbrella is must to catch this beautiful spot.

"Roses everywhere"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's a very beautiful garden and one of the best in the world. It's worth visiting in all the time especially in flowering season. The side of a hill is completely converted to a garden. The garden is separated into different layers and the type of roses in each layer is shown in the information boards in each layer. The walk through the garden is awesome and breathtaking. It is better to visit in evenings.

"Crowded during peak season"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's a great place for flower lovers, there are more than 4000 varieties of roses in here. At peak season it can be crowded and the walk between those roses is a romantic walk if certainly gone with your love and there is a small park too. Can be avoidable if you go with guys and not particularly with friends :)
