about botanical garden and aquarium

In the middle of the old Tamil town, you will find a quaint retreat reminiscent of the days of French colonialism in Pondicherry. The Botanical Garden and Aquarium is spread over 22 acres of lush green land replete with flower beds, gravel paths and numerous sparkling fountains. The garden was laid down by C S Perrottet in the year 1826 in ornate French style of architecture. On weekends, the musical fountains come alive with two spectacular shows taking place in the evenings. The aquarium houses a wide variety of ornamental fishes and other exotic marine life. Another major attraction here is the children's train that takes you through tunnels, bridges and artificial waterfalls--all of which add to the charm of the garden. 

Children can also indulge in a number of activities including dance, music and drawing classes at the Bal Bhavan. Karate classes are also organised here over the weekends as well as in the evenings. The gardens have all basic amenities including provision of clean restrooms, and locker facility. There is provision for purchasing food.
