The Botanical Garden in Pondicherry
was created in 1826. The garden has rare and interesting plants
procured from Calcutta, Madras and Sri Lanka. Currently it possesses a
proud collection of 1,500 species of different plants and herbs.
It is about 30 km from Pondicherry
town. Large fossil bearing areas fenced in to create the country's
first National Fossil-Wood Park here. These petrified trees lying
scattered on low mounds and stream
sections, date from the Cretaceous Age (100 million years ago). The
Chandramouliswara Temple, a monument of great architectural grandeur
dating back to the Chola period, is an added attraction. Every Pournami
(Full Moon Day), people gather here to worship Goddess Kali.
