Give this one a miss. Poorly maintained gardens, very little to see other than swarms of red and black beetles (best part of the visit!) - not much more to say - avoid!

I had visited the garden in the morning when there was not much crowd.The aquarium is poorly maintained.The garden as a whole is huge and children can enjoy the toy train,swings and slides etc.but for adults there is very little way of entertainment.

This is in the white town area and honestly nothing special about this place other than the fact that you get some opportunity to sit for few minutes after covering other parts of the town. They should also take care of open garbage bins, I...More

Although the gardens are worth a visit, beware of a money changer who accosts visitors here and outside the excellent Baker Street bakery. A slightly-built man he will offer a very attractive rate and insists you count the money. His trick is to proffer a...More
