Development Underway of Botanical Garden and Leopard Reserve at Kevde Ki Naal

Udaipur’s new eco-tourist destinations 

Kevde Ki Naal Botanical Garden

The development of a botanical garden and a leopard reserve is underway in Kevde Ki Naal on the Udaipur-Banswara highway. This  project, estimated at Rs 5 crore, will cover 70 hectares of land. The fencing work is complete, and plantation efforts are in progress.

Botanical Garden

The botanical garden aims to preserve over 600 species of flora found in the Udaipur region. It includes species such as Kevda, Trumpet flower, Mahua, Bel Patra, Banyan, Peepal, Palash, Jaljamuni, and Ber. The garden will serve as a valuable resource for students and researchers, offering insights into the benefits of these rare plants.

Leopard Reserve and Hospitals

A leopard reserve is under construction near Botanical Garden at Kevde Ki Naal. Spanning 40 hectares, a hospital for leopards will be built to cater to their medical needs. Additionally, a separate hospital for birds will be constructed due to the proximity of large water bodies like Piladar, Jaisamand Lake, and Daya Dam, which attract a significant number of birds.

Eco-Tourism Development

Under the eco-tourism project in the South Division, several tourist sites are being developed. These include Luv Kush Vatika at Machla Magra, Risala Forest near Balicha, and Nagar Van Udhyan etc.  These sites will feature trekking trails for visitors to explore the local flora and fauna, providing new destinations for tourists

The project will create employment opportunities for local people, who will be trained as nature guides. Currently, locals are actively participating in the construction of the parks.

Educational Opportunities

Being close to the city, the botanical garden will provide educational opportunities for students and researchers. They will gain knowledge about the rare plants and their benefits, contributing to the preservation of endangered species and promoting environmental awareness.
