O – for Okayama Friendship Garden

Okayama Friendship garden is in Pune, Maharashtra, India.  Its not very popular and very few people know about this garden.  I am happy that I could visit this garden during our visit to Pune.  

We went for a city tour – visiting historic sites, the famous Aghakhan palace and we were also taken to this garden.
No outside food is allowed, there well laid out pathways for walking, benches to sit and relax and we can carry our water bottle.  There is entry fee for this garden.

 “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere”
Vincent Van Gogh
“Whoever Loves and understands a garden will find contentment within” Chinese Proverb

This garden is beautiful and maintained very well. There is a small lake, which has colorful fishes and it’s a treat to the eyes.

Delight in the beauty that surrounds you.

We had a pleasant experience walking in this garden; very quiet place filled with bamboo trees and beautifully designed. This place is worth visiting….  It’s always a pleasure to stop every now and then., 

Just stop a while  and enjoy….. .. Take a deep breath. .. Relax  …. You have only one life to live.... Be Happy and fill yourself with Gratitude..
