An ideal botanical garden has been established on the southern side of the university campus over an area of 60 acres of undulated land for the conservation of both indigenous and exotic plant species of academic and aesthetic interests. More than 10,000 plants of about 400 species comprising over 150 families of both exotic and indigenous species of timber, medicinal, fruits, spices, beverage, latex, orchids, novelty etc. have been preserved or are growing naturally and used as experimental materials. About 72 species of orchids and a good number of rare shade plants have been conserved in the Orchidarium and Conservatory House respectively. At present, new management policy has been formulated to give it a sustainable shape both for academic and aesthetic aspects. The Department of Botany has also been associated with roadside plantation of the university.
