Covering 21 acres of land in a bustling part of the city, this garden is known for its fabulous collection of trees, flowering plants and other varieties of vegetation. It has an impressive infrastructure, which makes it one of the most well-maintained gardens across the country.

There is a sprawling and well-manicured field in the garden, encompassed by tall trees.

The Rose Garden at this place has 250 species of this beautiful flower, whereas the William Carey Xero Garden houses different varieties of xerophytes.
