"Worth going to Rose Garden" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
You will find roses sizes equivalent to sunflowers. Lot of roses in different colours. Rose garden is worth going during the Ooty flower show but other times also it is good. You can hire an auto to reach the place. You can bargain with the auto driver and can see also places at one go a 1 day or half day trip they will take you. All these places are hilly area so don't let the auto go otherwise you will have to walk.

"Beautiful and largest garden"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Rose garden was awesome place very beautiful rose in different colours. Not only rose so many beautiful flowers are there and very greenery place. Statues are made by flowers in different different shapes like animal's, birds, etc and I think rose garden is the largest garden in India. It is situated on the slopes of the Elk Hill in Vijayanagaram. Just go and enjoy. It's such a lovely place. My experience was very good and lots of memorable moments captured in my camera.

"Exotic colours and colours of Roses"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Apr 6, 2015
I visited Rose Garden in Ooty with my family recently. It was a wonderful experience. We were told that only 10% of plants had started blooming, we could see hundreds of beautiful roses in varied colours and hues with exotic names. It was a soul satisfying experience to see all those roses. Just wondering how it will be when all plants start blooming, what a riot of colours and aroma they will present! Mind boggling, indeed.
