The Padmapuram Gardens is known to be a favourite spot among many tourists who visit Araku Valley. Boasting variety of species of flora, the garden is home to an exquisite rose garden, treetop huts and a fun toy train for rides around it.
The garden was built to supply food and vegetables to soldiers of World War II in 1942 in a plot of 26 acres and later on, converted into a horticulture nursery with a training centre. The range of flower species and trees is a visual feast, which can be enjoyed even more if one decides to stay in one of the hanging cottages ten feet above the ground.
