We went here with our guide and he showed us all the different plants and even animals, and explained a lot to us.
The garden itself is huge and has a lot so see, but close no placques or explanations for the different plants.

Hi Kapiln, I'd recommend you get a guide (there's an older gut who has worked there for 30 years and charges 50 rupees per person) -he walks you around, giving you history and telling you about the medicinal uses of the trees and plants in the park.
You can walk around on your own if you want but I found the man to have so much knowledge.
