The most riveting sight of the Botanical Gardens in Kolkata is the huge canopy cover of a 200 year old Banyan tree. Situated on the western banks of river Hoogly the Botanical Gardens were established in 1786 by the British officer Col. Kyd with an aim to create a central research and cultivation facility for crops and plantations from across the globe.

Thus the scrumptious Assam and Darjeeling teas trace their roots to this garden. Apart from the regular Indian species it is also possible to be amongst some rare breeds straight from the Amazon and Congo basins, Brazil, Sumatra as well as Java. The grand sight of soaring Mahogany trees, enchanting and natural Orchid House and the glorious Cuban Palms is a memory of a lifetime.
