The meaning of the name is ‘simple’ and it is a botanical garden. This is one of the oldest botanical gardens of the city and the country. It was established in the year 1683 and since then it has enriched itself by bringing more and more trees, plants and bushes and many such things. The basic reason behind setting up this garden was the need for medicinal plants to deal with the plague outbreak in the nearby cities. The trees and plants had been brought here with the help of the merchants from all over the world. It is indeed one of the best loved places of the city.
