The Cactus Garden is the largest garden of this kind in Asia. It restores a wide collection of the endangered plant species. Among the trees, majority are the local species. There are dozens of species here under different genres and the most important are the Opuntias, Ferocactus and other succulent plants which includes Agaves, Echinosereus, Columnar cacti and mammillarias. The garden was named after JS Sarkaria.
The only plants that are popular here are the rose and orchids. The cactus garden gives a different experience to the people who do not belong to this region. There are many nurseries apart from this that restore these rare plants and the most demanded ones get sold for very high prices also. There are special bees here that pollinate the cacti seeds and are known as the cactus bees. These do not have parent bees and are pollinated by birds, moths and even bats. These make their hives and stay together with the other bees within the area.
The garden has raised terrace like structures and three water bodies also. The rare plants from South America and Mexico enhance the beauty of the garden even more. The bonsai collection of this garden is also worth admiring.
