Instead, its display sections rely heavily on hands-on visitor participation to promote a better understanding of the relations between plants and people.

Beyond it you can see inside a 22,500 square feet garden house small and big praying wheels [with 168 mill. mantras], a mani wall, stone carvings, thangkas, a 160 inches stupa and much more.
"Botanika" was build in Bremen / Germany from the Rhododendron Park GmbH with financial support from the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation.
