I wasn’t expecting a miracle cure but I did expect to get real products. Instead they were full of chemicals and quite nasty. Don’t shop here. The garden is small but interesting to see the plants. Heavy selling from guide. Products very expensive

This place is one of these which one should avoid at all cost. Thugs impersonating as Ayurvedic doctors . These are the kind of people who bring the age old traditional treatments in shame. Did not buy anything as I can never be convinced about...More
