about zakir hussain rose garden

For those hailing from concrete jungles, Zakir Hussain Rose Garden is the perfect place to head to. Replete with some 1,600 different varieties of roses, the garden is a sight to behold in spring and winter when it's taken over by blossoming flowers and busily buzzing bees and birds. Named after the 3rd President of India, Dr. Zakir Hussain, a pioneering educationist and statesman, the garden was established in 1967.


While roses are the stars here, the garden is replete with other flowers and medicinal plants as well, a figure totalling around 17,000+ plants. Take a walk through its sculpted landscape and here and there you can spot Bel/Bael trees, Yellow Gulmohar, Camphor, Bahera and Harar/Harad, all medicinal plants of immense significance.


Zakir Hussain Rose Garden is one of Asia's largest rose gardens. Typically, the garden is serene and tranquil where birds belt out melodious songs, but come February, it buzzes with excitement and activity in preparation for the Rose Festival and Annual Festival of Gardens held in March, a major cultural event of Chandigarh.
