1A small garden constructed in the Japanese style gives a touch of exotic charm to the landscape. So does the hanging bridge across the river.
The Passenger ropeway, the first of its kind in South India , offers an adventurous and delightful air journey of 20 minutes across the gardens, giving a soul stirring view of the gardens and the distant hills that kiss the heavens and the blue strip of the reservoir.
The telescopic tower in the garden provides a terrestrial view of up to 40 miles.
This is a marvellous and astounding work of art created by years of hard work by several labourers, using only embroidery colour threads without the aid of needles or any special devices. Designed by Mr. Antony Joseph, the Thread Garden has an abundant collection of charming life-like models of plants and flowers exquisitely arranged and housed in a large indoor glass chamber built very close to the Fantasy Park .
The first rock garden that emerged from the Master creator Padmashree Nek Chand of Chandigarh , in South India is at Malampuzha.The most interesting feature in the making of this wonder garden is that the whole place is made of unwanted and broken pieces of bangles, tiles, used plastic cans, tins and other waste materials.
