Good place to get information on the spices and how they are grown, and maintained. Although this is only a small area only for demonstration and explaination purpose, but it is worth a stop, The only problem is the entry fees is too high for this 1 hour stop.

A very well maintained spice and herbal garden. We were really amazed to see so much variety of spices and herbals. They also have a spices stall which made us buy so much stuff :) Must visit while going to Munnar

Not suggested..as..its...Expensive & Over Priced Shop of similar quality products available at various local small shops....at Takkedy. Suggests that spice garden may be visited but do not purchase from there. Traveler should first visit local shops there.

Buy all your needs here...Honey,pepper,cardamom,tea masala,green tea etc., I noticed the Trip Advisor sticker and felt encouraged to shop...and it was... More

The entire tour focuses only on sales which will happen after the tour. and i dont get why they asked our group to rate a five star in tripadvisor. The guides are not trained in studies relating to sipces or just herbs. The only qualification they have is the ability to speak broken english. My guide who is supposedly an... More
