Our World Tuesday/ A Garden In Khatauli

Driving through the northern part of the country we stopped at a restaurant called Cheetal Grand at Khatauli. Khatauli is a hundred miles away from Delhi on the Delhi- Saharanpur road. It’s a town in the Muzzafarpur district of Uttar Pradesh.

We had taken this route from Delhi, passing through a rural area with a river on one side and fields on the other.

It was if a restaurant with a beautiful garden appeared out of the blue. The wooden bridges, the toadstools, and those flowers in full bloom…!

Plumbagos vied for space with other exoticas.

Different types of canna lilies with petunias in the background.

Water below this bridge had water lilies blooming.

And a huge toad(?) guarded the little pool. I’ve never been too sure about the difference between toads and frogs.

I thought I was done with photographing amaryllis lilies but this one begged to be included!

The sunbird on the coral tree in my previous post was taken in this very garden. This was indeed one of the most beautiful sights during our journey, particularly because we hadn’t expected that a turn on the highway would lead us to such a lovely garden!

This post is for Our World Tuesday.

    What a beautiful garden! Can’t imaging anything like this in Chennai. But then the weather in the North is much more garden friendly. Was just catching up with all your previous posts. Must admit I’ve been missing a lot.

    Your frog is really impressive. He is lots bigger than all the ones we have out here in the country. The gardens are gorgeous…so filled with lovely colors. Love the canna lilies and the pretty white water lily. We have lots of those here. genie

  9. Oh that amaryllis is beautiful! I love the many layers of petals it has. Very delightful 😀 And what a wonderful discover… this garden is really something worth mentioning.

    Our world can be full of surprises if we just stay flexible and follow our instincts. What a great find to have a rest stop for the soul and a meal to fuel general wellbeing. A lovely garden indeed Kanak.
