Baldha Garden

The century old Boldha Garden is situated in Wari, in the old part of Dhaka city (opposite the Christian cemetery). Set up by Narendra Narayan Roy, a landlord and nature lover, the garden has a nice collection of indigenous and exotic plants and is one of the most exciting attention for naturalists and tourists alike.

Divided into two units, psyche (the soul) and cybele (mother goddes of nature). The garden has about 1500 plants and trees cover 672 species and 87 families. Many of these are rare plants procured from different countries of the world. A lovely lily pond inside Psyche and a sun dial are worth visiting. The tombs of the founder and his son are located within Cybele.

Open:
Saturday-Thursday, 9:00am to 5:00 pm. Friday closed.

Entry tickets are available on the gate.
