Orchid Pavilion

This is a large kingdom of orchids full of new or rare and valuable species. It is a perfect place to study the tropical orchids.

 

Desert Plant Greenhouse

Desert plants such as cacti and succulent plants are kept in glasshouses. Visitors can learn about the evolution of fertile species that gradually diversified to survive the drought. The leaves once were green grew smaller and finally transformed themselves into spines and the tall trunks turned short and chubby for the purpose of storing water. All of these are displayed at the greenhouse attaching great importance to art and beauty.

 

Water Lilly Garden

The garden boasts a large number of lilies from Thailand and foreign countries. The lily is believed to have connected with various cultures in this world for more than 5,000 years. Ancient Egyptians considered it to be holy and held it as a fertility symbol as the flower thrives well along the sacred Nile River. In India, the lily is the national flower, conveying a special meaning in Hinduism as the image of each supreme god, Brahman, is seated on the lily flower. The lily is also a sacred flower for the Buddhists. When the lord Buddha was born he was able to walk and every pace he made there were lily flowers coming up to support the young lord.

 

Tropical Garden

Inside the dome is a great collection of rare species usually found in deep jungle or on cliff walls.
