Located in close vicinity of the southern banks of Adyar River lies The Huddleston Gardens of Theosophical Society, Tamil Nadu. It sprawls across an area of 260 acres and is popular among tourists and locals alike. Looks are surely deceptive at this place –as after the first view which may not be so impressive, you are bound to indulge in some easy exploration its lush crannies/ nooks. Boasting of the distinction of being Chennai's little secret garden, this venue reminds you of places depicted in the novels written by Frances Burton. A picnic spot and getaway for the local populace, this sightseeing location helps you escape the urban mundane regime of day-to-day life.
Lush with greenery and abundant with blooming flowers, this garden helps you sneak upon playful squirrels, watch birds breaking into a soulful melody, look at fruit bats lurking in gay abandon, mongooses, wild cats, and hares inhabiting the area’s mahogany trees and much more. Here, you will also come across the majestic roots of a 450 years old Banyan tree—with its aerial roots covering a range of over 60,000 square meters. A must visit indeed!
