  • Don't go. Fraudulent claims to sell their spices and medicines. Also, you don't have anything to see in nursery. Don't waste your time. Your guide is there to sell you spices. Per head 100/- bugs and 400/- for elephant ride. Total waste. Elephant ride of thekkadi is best and not here
  • A must visit place when planning Thekkady visit. The garden is fully grown with different verities of spices. One should have to spend minimum 4 hours to get an overall idea of what are these. They have full knowledge of all kinds of plants they are growing there. Had a chance to talk with Mr Justin, a person with full knowledge of botanical species and got a chance to see, taste, feel these verities. It will take 2,3 days to see all as there are hectors of area planted with kinds of plants and trees. So many kinds of imported plants there.
