It has some 5\66 different species of fern, 115 orchids, 77 cacti, and succulents and about 200 trees and shrubs as well as many ornamentals __ though this represents only a small proportion of the country’s 6,500 botanical species. It also features orchid and cacti houses, as well as fern, Japanese, and water gardens. Throughout, by lily ponds and on grassy slopes, the visitor finds rest and shade in thatched shelters.

Every 12 years, thousands of pilgrims journey from all over Nepal and India to bathe in the divine and healing waters of the Godavari spring.
