Medicinal Garden

The use of plants for medical treatment is believed to have started over 60,000 years ago. Ancient Egyptian, Indian, Greek and Chinese civilizations have all documented the use of medicinal plants to cure infections, treat injuries and supplement nutrition. At least 35,000 plant species are estimated to have medicinal value and more than 7,000 medicinal compounds in modern medicine are derived from plants. This garden has hundreds of medicinal species such as Withania somnifera (ashwagandha) and Justicia adhatoda (adulsa) to highlight the importance of plants in maintaining human health.
