Matai Garden

We have heard of garden. But have you ever been to Matai garden? A visit to the tourists spot in Manipur would take you totally into a separate world of enchanting natural beauty. The Manipuris call it Ibudhou Asheiningthou Garden which stands tall in the heart of the capital town of Imphal. The spot of unmatched beauty. Matai is the local god to be named after the Ibudhou Asheiningthou Garden. The striking feature of the garden is duranta—a well shaped and beautiful plant which draws no less attention of the tourists and botanists alike. The picturesque lush green garden beside the blue hill have made it a dreamscape for the domestic and foreign tourists whose journey meets perfection. None of the visitors in Imphal can resist the temptation of visiting the garden to spend the time in the midst of the vegetation. The sprawling spot of tourists attraction is 5 km far away from the madding crowd in Imphal which is reachable through a few minutes journey on the National Highway No 39.      

The best time to visit the hot spot is September-October when the rainy season ends to pave the way for autumn. Imphal is the nearest airport for the air tourists from where bus and taxi services are available. The closest rail head is also Imphal while it is reachable from Guwahati via Imphal by bus through National Highway 36 and 39.
