A beautifully landscaped garden nestled in the green atmosphere of the leisure zone in Thenmala is the Nakshatravanam. The name translates to the "star garden" in Tamil; the garden solely dedicated to the twinkling constellations in the sky. Locals believe that visiting the Nakshatravanam is bound to bring good luck to the visitor.
The garden has 27 trees, each of which corresponds to the 27 stars of the zodiac. It is a popular belief that one can get happiness from a visit to the garden. This nursery of trees has a number of wooden towers of medical, social and aesthetic value. The trees of the zodiac are linked with the constellations; their history is an interesting one for astrologers. Visit this tree nursery and take home seedlings of your favourite star; a fascinating experience for all tourists.
