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!
