AN ELGIN EXCLUSIVE FEATURE By Katyayini Kesharwani
After women, flowers are the most divine creations. – Christian Dior
“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.”
Lloyd’s Botanical Garden is a ‘one of its kinds’ botanical garden spread in about 40 acres of land. This botanical garden shelters several endangered and exotic species of fauna. The aim of Lloyd’s Botanical Garden is to preserve the native floral species of Darjeeling Himalayan hill region, Sikkim and its neighbouring regions. It is also home to several exotic varieties of flora.
Filled with a variety of blooms, Lloyd Botanical Garden is a 5-minute trip from The Elgin, Darjeeling and can be entered through any of its resplendent four gates.
