Well, last month I visited Eden Garden near at the city centre in the main downtown, I really enjoyed that visit and had a great fun. The whole garden divided in many parts. Inceptionally, I thought from the outside that it was mere a garden, but it was such a big that person could get tired of visiting. First of all, we visited Flower section, where we witnessed many types; almost around 400 to 500 different types of flowers and plants we saw, it was an incredible experience. I had never ever had such experience. I wanted to visit Netherlands especially for Tulips, luckily I saw there in different colours in ample numbers; looked amazingly colourful. apart from that Chrysanthemum that I had seen only in wallpaper in desktop. I had seen multiple varieties of its size and in colours, quite charming. Then we saw many garden plants like money plant, holy basil, Aloe Vera and many more. attended 15 minutes show of gardening, got the ideas of benefits of gardening. Then, we did boating in the lake that has been located exactly in the centre of the garden, we enjoyed that ride. it was a time of dusk.After that, suddenly lights got off, we got surprised but in a moment fountains got started and colourful lights switched on and music started. Those dancing fountains in colourful blinking lights with meeting the beats and sounds of music had made the whole sanctum very sparkling like a jewel sparkled in moonlight. a great very mesmerised experience.
