Truly an amazing botanical garden. Visiting these gardens were the highlight of my visit to Kandy. It was one of the stops on my tuk tuk tour of Kandy. 90 minutes was allotted for the visit but realistically you need more time.

A perfect activity a sunny day! You can rent tiny tuktuk and drive around the place. It's extremely nicely kept and very beautifully organised. A good place to escape from the heat in town also.

You could spend a day here if you like plants and flowers. Otherwise a half day is nice to get a good look around. The Golf cart is good to hire for an hour as you get to see the whole area.
