About Semmozhi Poonga

If you want to lose yourself in the beauty of nature, whilst in the metropolitan city of Chennai - head out to Semmozhi Poonga. This beautiful botanical garden was set up in 2010 by the horticulture department of the Government of Tamil Nadu. Sprawled across 20 acres of land, it is Chennai’s first Botanical garden and houses more than 500 species of plants. It has about 80 trees that were in existence on this land earlier, and some of these are more than 100 years old! The garden has twenty-five thematic gardens, such as golden garden (featuring plants that flower in different shades of gold), water and rock garden, butterfly garden, fern garden, bonsai garden, cascade garden, aromatic, palm court, tree court, and numerous other theme gardens. Besides these it features a mural walk, fountain areas, and an artificial lake with ducks. It also has some exotic plants, many of which are imported from countries like China and Thailand. At night the garden is beautifully illuminated with various lights. The garden is a big tourist attraction and also the locale of many film shoots. It is located at the junction of the Cathedral Road and Anna Salai.
