Orman Garden

 Orman Garden, located in Giza, Egypt,  near the University of Cairo, is one of the most famous botanical gardens in Egypt.

The garden covers about 28 acres.  It was first designed in 1875.  Today, the garden contains an herbarium building, a rock garden, a rose garden, cactus gardens, and probably the most notable feature, the lotus pond.

The garden is open from dawn to dusk. There is a cost for admission, but I was unable to find that information for this post.

    1. If you ever go to Egypt to see the pyramids, swing by to see this. It's in the same neighborhood.

    1. Hello! The nice thing about this garden, is that it's relatively close to the pyramids. It's something else to do when you're in the area.
