The herb garden was amazing. Every plant in the garden was a cure for some ailment or other. Every ailment I know had a cure in the garden. Kids enjoyed it a lot. Worthy trip. Bought a few aromatic spices at the shop upfront.

you can skip this outing unless you are a botanist/ayurveda enthusiast. All they offer is a fifteen minutes tour of the garden while mentioning you about various indian spice which are used/can be used for various ailments.... Honeymooners please avoid.

Visiting spice garden and knowing about different herbal plants with the help of guide Mr.Manoj was exciting and memorable. Purchased many spices and oils which were genuine and worth the price.
