Nineteen varieties of nectar plants and twenty varieties of food plants help to create a favorable environment for the growth and multiplication of butterflies.
Spread over a thousand square meters, the garden provides various research opportunities to entomologists such as studying the life cycle of butterflies, studying the relationships between plants and butterflies, etc. A visitor service is also available to the garden, which offers a great place to get reintroduced to nature.
