    This garden lies in the far south-west of the old Tamil Town area and was laid out and designed in 1826 by G.S. Perrorret whose memorial lies in the garden. The gardens are a little scruffy now but still show formal French styles with clipped trees, flower beds, gravel walks and fountains. There are said to be over 1,500 species of plants in the garden and there's even a Japanese Garden and a "Joy" train.

    Open: 6am-6pm.

    C.S. Perrotet established Botanical Gardens, a beautiful tourist attraction in Pondicherry in 1826. The garden encloses a good collection of exotic and rare plants and also houses an aquarium. It has a wealthy and diverse collection of plant species from many parts of India as well as from abroad.

    Aquarium displays many sea living organisms including variety of fish flora. It also exhibits various methods of fishing adopted in coastal areas., though it is not much compared to the aquariums we have seen abroad.
