Resplendent with many species of plants and flowers, the Botanical Survey of India Orchidarium is a haven for nature lovers and horticulturists alike. Known specially for its wide range of orchids, this Orchidarium lies along the tranquil waters of the Ward Lake. Fringed by the flush habitats of the Mawphland Sacred groves, this famous sightseeing location is a must visit for wanderers and visitors in Shillong.
Here, you come across some very interesting varieties of rare orchids and other rare plantations. The government’s efforts to protect these rapid reducing species are indeed commendable and attract visitors from all over the world. The venue also boasts of a small aviary that has a beautiful collection of colorful birds –chirping across the day. A must visit indeed!
