A sprawling expansion of 460 acres of ornamental, flower and landscape gardens under the auspicious of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, TTD gardens is a flamboyant location in Tirumala. This garden supplies 500 kilograms of flowers daily to the various temples in and around Tirumala. It is responsible for the beautification of the temples on special occasions apart from providing the routine demands for flowers.
It is believed that Ramanuja and his disciple Sri Anandalwar had paved way for such a magnificent patch in the 14th century. Another legend is that Sattada Sri Vaishnavas cultivated the Tirumala flower gardens under the name of Dasa Nambis. Now the garden has four nurseries namely in the Travellers Bungalow area, Gogarbham Dam area, Sri Padmavathi Guest House area and Divyaramam area in which ten lakh plants are produced annually. One can see mixed assortments of crotons, bougainvilleas, hibiscus, which is named after great personalities like N.T. Ramarao, S.D. Sarma and Ramanuja.
There are not only the flowerbeds that allure one, the charm of the garden is prettily complimented by various streams and ponds, which are full of lovely lotus flowers.
