Love Khush Garden in Udaipur second in Udaipur

The Vatika's construction has been started in Sayra, Udaipur

The second Love Kush Vatika in the district will be established in Sayra's Jorma valley along the Ranakpur road, situated 100 km away from the city. Once the construction is finished, Udaipur will distinguish itself as the first district in the state to possess two such gardens. This accomplishment can be attributed to Udaipur district's unique status, boasting two regional forest divisions within the department, encompassing over 2700 sq. km of forested area. The inaugural vatika in the city of lakes is located within the forest block of Machla Magra in Dakshin Mandal.

The Jorma Valley garden, situated in Sayra within the Uttar Mandal, is slated to be established across approximately 30 hectares. To fund this project, the government has allocated a budget of Rs 40 lakh. Currently, the initial steps involve the clearance of Lantana grass and the commencement of wall construction at the designated location. Notably, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had included in the budget a plan to establish a Lavkush Vatika in every district, with each district receiving a budget of Rs 2 crore for this purpose.

A 3 km long trail will be established to facilitate tourist visits to the garden. Additionally, amenities such as a Watch Tower, Children's Park, Herbal Park, and Cafeteria will be developed. The pond is also scheduled for renovation, while water harvesting infrastructure in the form of a check dam and gabion wall will be constructed. 

The uniqueness of this garden  lies in its dual focus, not solely on tourism, but also on generating employment opportunities for the local villagers. The garden will also serve as a platform for the sale of indigenous handicraft products, including items such as aloe vera products, honey, and gulal. Sayra Ranger Bhupendra Singh mentioned that the garden’s anicut holds water throughout the year, prompting plans to introduce water-based activities. Furthermore, efforts will be made to enhance the variety of trees within the forest area.
