Best place to see if you low rose species

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 varities 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.

Nothing much to do here, waste of time

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.
