This garden is dedicated to the collection, cultivation and display of a wide range of native medicinal plants, labelled with their botanical names. It has the majority of the tree specimens found in Gir. A nursery has been developed to propagate the rare indigenous flora of Gir. A photo gallery has also been created, which gives information on the medicinal flora of Gir. It also has two vermicompost units which aid in the recycling of organic wastes.
The tranquil surroundings here serve as an excellent birding site, representing the majority of the beautiful terrestrial avifauna of this area, which includes both resident and migratory species. The site becomes live with the calls and fluttering of flycatchers, babblers, prinias, parakeets, woodpeckers, doves, shrikes, robins, drongos, cuckoos, wagtails, francolins, quails, and the birds of prey. The Butterflies, the flying jewels of Mother Nature, are innumerable during the warmer months of the year. Owing to the heterogeneous composition of host plants, they tend to breed in large numbers during wet months.
At this place, one may also catch a glimpse of the Sambar Deers in small groups browsing leisurely in the thickets, a solitary Hare galloping in the grass, a Mongoose hopping across the track, or a Snake moving swiftly along the tree trunks. A scape of Fruit Bats on a giant Banyan tree and their squeals invariably attract the visitors’ attention.
