Rose Garden, Yercaud

Rose Garden, Yercaud
It is located close to lady's and gent's seat. Entry is ₹30 per head. Parking charges are extra (₹40 or so). Good for a stroll in the greens. This garden is plagued with the same problem that is visible in all other public gardens in Yercaud - an unkempt look and seeming lack of maintenance.

Plus points of the rose garden are its nice layout and lots of open space for children. Negative points are its high entrance fees and lack of proper upkeep. Rose season is from March to June and hence in other months of the year there may not be many roses to see.

Adjacent to the Children’s Seat, is a beautiful rose garden, which hosts a wide variety of roses. The mere variety of shades is worth admiring; and make for awesome photos. Rose garden & Silk Farm is located at a distance of 2 km from Yercaud boat house.

The Rose Garden has a good collection of variety of Roses. The nursery inside the garden provides you to purchase plants. One can see the cultivation of Mulberries, the growing of silk worms and the method of spinning silk.

The Silk Farm (go little ahead from Lady's seat and take a mud road on the right) does not allow outsiders. The season for breeding is during monsoons.
