Me and 3 others visited the conservatory around the 20th of december 2013, we used google maps to find our way and a wonderful road it was that led up to this location : ) We were taken on a tour by the guide who gave us time to soak things in and catch glimpses of a host of different... More

After having found this place on trip advisor , we were induced to visit this Conservatory . To our surprise , we found many birds ! The owner , Dr. Jyoti and her family are indeed passionate about nature and biodiversity .She was very kind to extend her warm welcome and spared time with us to show her house's roof... More

Having planned a butterfly conservatory in the middle of Goa seemed unusual to me initially. On visiting, it was an amazing experience, Though we went in the afternoon, when the butterflies were having a siesta time, but the overall experience was refreshing. My 4 year old had a lot of questions. The conservatory run by the husband and duo who... More

If you like touristy places with lots of things to do, and lots of people around, this is NOT for you. However, I loved it for the following reasons 1. Labour of love by two lovely people - a Homeopathy doctor & an engineer 2. Beautifully created green landscape attracting a variety of flora & fauna in a small hillock.... More

Brilliant effort by a nature loving family to conserve and increase the population of butterflies. During year ends you get to see various types of butterflies and also the owner takes out time to explain details about each of the butterfly family, their food and habits.

Really impressed by the dedication with which the garden has been set up. Don't miss the awesome rainwater harvesting system built into the owner's house. Recommended for the nature lover and the bird watcher / butterfly watcher type who is willing to spend some time for a sighting. The butterflies apparenty don't wake up till the sun is out and...

I visited this place after reading all the great reviews here on tripadvisor but, was really dissapointed. First of all its really far off from the places where most tourists stay(we stayed near baga beach) it took us about 1.5 hours to reach there and could hardly find any butterflies. We were charged some 150 rupees per head and then... More

This is a fantastic, unusual place to visit. It is close to the Spice Farm where the tour only takes an hour and gives you lunch, so you can go to the Butterfly Conservatory as well afterwards. You can do it in an hour also, but may want to just sit and watch for longer. Rare species of butterfly like... More

We, the three of us, arrived very early to see and watch the butterflies and other creatures wake slowly in the warmth of the morning sun, despite the conservatory being on the west side of the hill. Even before we entered the conservatory we were treated to a Butterfly show with caterpillars of the Blue Tiger butterflies. Yashodan Heblekar met... More
