Very classic green garden with very old plant lover Mr. Balda carrying long memory. This is situated in war I one of the old posh area of Dhaka. From here any one can start exploring old Dhaka.

Its a miniature gardens, highly densed with tree samples, got some unique collection, some very old tree.If you love trees then you will like this place.Could be more informative and educational if they improve the facility.Also its normally crowded with honey couples so not so suitable to bring along children's.

I don't know how a person had such a passion for collecting and saving most wonderful trees and plants in Dhaka city more than 100 years ago. Once you enter the garden you would find the oldest "Eden Project" in Dhaka city. How the Amazon Lily was collected, grown and still thriving is unknown to me (personally I am interested... More

A tiny small place with huge gathering. You can take a look the full park within 5-10 mins. You have noticed that a number of couple doing kiss each other in front of you. This is the most embarrassing thing you would face. So be careful if you have a plan to visit with tour family member.

A small piece of history in one the bustling area of Old Dhaka. A garden/place for nature lover, nature photography, but not much. The place is too small to spend an hour inside. Not to mention the young couples come here to spend some alone time. You can mostly find them as visitor and they can be found hiding under/behind... More

-The area isn't that much big and also the trees are planted too close to each other. -Be prepared to get numerous mosquito bites. -Seems that nowadays it is mainly a place for young lovers & one will be bewildered by seeing their love-making scenes! They are even not ashamed of their deeds & they do these like nobody seems... More

Peaceful and interesting spot. Loved the bats. In the day they move very little and even a phone camera can get a great shot. Also quite the place for young couples who want privacy (for chatting, you can still bring the family) One pair insisted on a small PDA by us so they could get a picture (just a cuddle... More
