The first section, near the entrance, has a huge lawn, a small pond and a fern house (that has over 100 species of ferns). The main attraction here is the map of India that is designed by few plants. The next section (after climbing up few steps), has a rose garden, and several aquatic plants and flowers grown on artificial ponds. The next section is at a height, and you get a bird’s eye view of the whole botanical garden. There are several flowers of various colors in this section.
