Not what I expected

A bit disappointing,I was expecting more,not so much hanging gardens,but just gardens. It took us about 25 minutes to go round it and that was likely 10 minutes too much.

I expected more flowers and grander gardens. Great scenery and skyline of the city. Gardens are more scrubs but well maintained- all green and pretty🌸

On a promontory a little above the governor's residence, and somewhat out of the hullabaloo of the nearby crosstown traffic, the hanging gardens promise more than they deliver. Although located on hill top there is no spectacular view (but I suspect a neighbouring apartment built like a mini-Parthenon enjoys a splendid vista from its higher elevation), and the grounds were...

Located in the tony area of Malabar Hill in Mumbai, this is one of Mumbai's most popular attraction for long. Well maintained spacious garden, equally thronged by Mumbai residents as well as visitors. Excellent connectivity by bus and cab services to nearby railway stations and to most parts of South and Central Mumbai.

The garden is laid out on the hill side and hence the name. This is a landmark of Mumbai. It has a number of plants and the walking area is well laid out. But it is no more what it used to be when we first visited Mumbai I did not find its old charm.

Maybe coming from a country that is very green has jaded my opinion of this garden. - red dirt paths - unkept gardens - weeds galore I seriously don't understand why it's called the "hanging" gardens - the only thing that was hanging in this garden, was my expectations for something beautiful. Advice: just pick another attraction to visit.

We were so looking forward to visiting the gardens and were left very very disappointed. The website shows topiary and beautifully kept gardens. There was none of this.. just unkept flower beds that needed a lot of work to make them pretty again Some other reviews are right it is quite and from the park over the road there is... More

The location of the garden is on top of a hill and is very convenient for tourists since there many local BEST buses that operate to and fro from the garden to closeby railway stations...

We were shocked at how under maintained these gardens are. It felt it had been abandoned, it was so poor. The paths were full of debris, the flower beds full of weeds and it was generally a mess. We walked from one end to the other in about 10 mins and then left. It's a shame because it could be... More
