Spice Garden at Munnar- Teaching you the origin of Spices

IMG_3001

A complete Munnar trip would take four days if one wants to enjoy thoroughly its entire beauty. Since we had only two days, we decided to visit only important and informative places. That’s what made us spend more than half of a day at the Cinnamon Garden affiliated to Green Valley. More than my son, my husband and me thoroughly enjoyed the visit and learnt a lot from it. We were very glad that we could see all those spices in their true form amidst the sweet sounds of birds.

Here’s what all we learnt at the spice garden. Hope you too find them informative…….
