Visit the 13-acre Kodaikanal Rose Garden, which is breathtaking and was made public in 2018 by the Tamil Nadu government. With an amazing overall area of 9 acres, it surpasses the Ooty Government Rose Garden. With a promised 100,000 plants, this garden is a rose-lover's paradise that you won't want to miss!
For the convenience of visitors, a path has been constructed in the garden for them to take a leisurely stroll and admire its beauty. The pathway is made of paver bricks for a comfortable walk. Additionally, a spacious parking lot has been built nearby for ease of access. Bryant Park, the main tourist attraction of the hill station, is being developed with equal priority.
You can roam around the garden in battery cars which costs Rs. 30 per person for 15-30 minutes. These cars are advisable for older people and people who are unable to walk. There are additional entertainments in the garden to be explored like horse rides. The 10-minutes horse ride covers 100 to 300 meters on average, and it is worthwhile for everyone. Rose Garden Kodaikanal contains an outdoor playground with a slider, seesaw, swings, and other items for kids, just like all other gardens. The entry fee is Rs.20 for adults and Rs.10 for children. Rs.50 is to be paid for if you carry a camera. The garden is open from 09:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m.
