Maintained by the Tamil Nadu Horticulture Department, the Rose Garden was set up to commemorate the 100th Flower Festival of the Botanical Garden in 1995. Sprawled across 4 hectare, Rose Garden has over 2,500 varieties of roses, said to be the largest collection in India.

Take a leisurely stroll in the garden, and soak in the sights and the smells of beautiful roses across a five-terrace setup. Situated on the lower slopes of Elk Hill, the garden, decorated with rose creepers, boasts varieties like hybrid tea roses, miniature rose, florbunda and ramblers. There are even green and black roses here! To captivate the senses, there is a viewpoint in the garden called Nila Maadam, from where one can get a breathtaking view of the entire landscape.
