The garden provides learning and recreational facilities. It is divided into different sections and is managed by the Forest Department under the Ministry of Environment and Forests.  There are millions of plants which are eye-soothing. It is one of the largest botanical gardens of my city, and a nature learning centre for the nature lovers, bird watchers, photographers and botanists and a tourist destination. The Garden has a scientific collection of approximately 100,000 preserved specimens of plants.

I love to do pretty much everything at this place, including relaxing at a restaurant, walking in its wide space freely, renting a boat, watching beautiful lotus flowers in ponds in addition to watching water plants and birds from the observation decks.  In fact, thousands of people visit this place in the morning, without paying any fees, in order to do jogging while families also bring their children to enjoy the beautiful nature. Whenever I visit this place, I get rid of all the worries and tensions.

When the city is full of skyscrapers, this place provides breathing space to the residents.

Moreover, I get a chance to widen my social circle by meeting like-minded people over here.

Apart from this, I always get into a state of flow while having a walk over here.

Due to this garden, I have maintained my physical and mental fitness.

Overall, this is a place where I often visit as it is near my home and easy to catch up with my friends as well.
