Took a detour from GT Road while heading to Shimla just to visit this lovely 7acres of lush green garden. Loved the way the plants have been highlighted with prints on stones next to the plants! Best part is that one can buy the plants from a richly stocked nursery on the campus!

Very small, Compact and centrally located garden. Cactus lovers will really enjoy. State office can be taken out from the garden.

Various varieties of cactus in the garden. The garden is very well managed and it has timings for visit. Entry fees is 10 Rs. per person. The garden is very beautiful and but it is a small garden.

An unique garden dedicated to the ever fascinating Cacti. The excedingly well maintained garden boasts of more 3500 varieties including some very rare and almost extinct species.

I am thrilled to see about 1100 varieties of cactus found all over the world at one place. Few cactus are upto 11 feet tall which we can not imagine. This garden is for teen agers and above , and not for kids. It is also beautifully landscaped. Must see for people coming to Chandigarh.
