One of the most beautiful rose gardens in India, the Rose Garden in Ooty is home to one of the largest collection of rose varieties in the country. It is located in Vijayanagaram, an area known for its tropical climate that makes it ideal for rose cultivation.
The park covers 10 acres of land and is maintained by the Tamil Nadu Horticulture Department.
Spread across the garden are tunnels, pergolas, bowers apart from the rose hedges. There is an observation platform on the slopes from which guests can view the entire garden. In 2006, it was awarded the Garden of Excellence award by the World Federation of Rose Societies.Places nearby:
