The Department has the following
Established in 1974, botanical garden is flanked in an area
of 5 acres. Botanical garden is housing more than 500
species of angiosperms, gymnosperms, pteridophytes,
bryophytes and macrofungi. Garden is having the experimental
beds for researchers of the department. In department
certain specific sections of plants are maintained eg.
succulents, medicinal plants, threatened plants, grasses
etc. Family wise maintenance of the plants is promoted for
easy understanding of evolutionary pattern of the plants.
The botanical garden is also having the facilities of (a)
green house and (b) glass house.
Shade loving plants are grown in green house, where well
maintained water circulation system and water sprinklers
help to maintain the moisture during the dry seasons.
For the acclimatization of the plants of extreme climates,
department of botany is having a automated green house fully
equipped with air conditioned system, water sprinklers and
