(2) Plant Conservatory

This green oasis, perched high up on a sloped terrain, offers the right amount of seclusion among its gardens and natural terrain. Sit under a tree, pick any of the benches in the garden area, or head up higher on the stone-paved pathway that leads to a waterfall. Take a walk inside the glass house in the premises that exhibits a number of flowers. There is a café inside where you get snacks and tea or you can eat at the stalls outside the conservatory.

This manicured garden is a lovely place to visit if you miss a typical park. The garden is divided into different sections with trees and shrubs lining the peripheries. There is a greenhouse where different types of orchids are preserved. You will be charmed by the colourful flowers, wire-shaped installations of animals, and a small footbridge constructed over a pond. Saramsa is popular with picnickers, so choose your day and time wisely if you’re looking for peace and quiet. There are a few shops outside where you can grab a bite.
