This government rose garden is of about 4 hectares of land and having more than 20000 variety of species of rose plants. Best time to visit this garden is around May to July as this period is it's season time. I visited this place during October when most of the plants ( about 90%) did not had rose in it. Entry free for people is a must and so is camera or video camera fee. The garden is located on the slopes of a hill. You will need walk all the way to the slope of the hill through steps while seeing varieties of roses and have to go back up to go back to the entrance which is a bit difficult if you have weak/painful legs. I did not notice if this place is built as wheelchair friendly.. I will update if I find something about this.
A very beautiful place to visit. I recommend to view timings before going. It closes in early evening.extremely mesmerizing!!! Beautiful collection of roses. Some are very rare. Must give it a try. I never knew a "green" rose existed too.
