- Vaman – The Bonsai Garden
Tracing its origins back to China and Japan, bonsai is one of the most creative, spectacular and extraordinary cultivation techniques humans have ever invented. Using this technique, ordinary trees can be grown in small pots and containers. In other words, bonsai creates miniature trees that mimic the scale and appearance of full-size trees. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? Well, you can now explore a fascinating array of such minuscule trees at Vaman, the bonsai garden located within Ramoji Film City. If you are familiar with Indian mythology, you know where the name Vaman comes from, don’t you?
The bonsai garden at the film city complex is a delightful visual treat, to say the least. Hundreds of species of miniature trees are displayed here, some of which even have berry-like fruits hanging from their tiny branches. The bonsai collection at Ramoji also includes decorative and flowering trees in addition to fruit bearing varieties. Each of these trees is grown and maintained under the guidance of professionally qualified bonsai experts from all over the world.
