Wisnu, God Preserver of Life.
From here.you will be greeted by our friendly guides and escorted past tree fern posts
covered with flowering Dendrobiums and beds of Mokara orchids, then along a walkway
lined with red flowering sprays of Kagawara 'Christie Low'.

trees, surrounded by colourful foliage including Cordylines and Costa and on past Heliconia that
line the pathway, small cut flower varieties on the left and the larger South American varieties on the
right, ending with the graceful and showy hanging Heliconia rostrata.
