Overview
More
A conservation project by an ordinary couple attracts a lot of visitors inspired by their efforts to transform a barren hillslope into a forest. The Butterfly is used only as a catalyst . Breeding butterflies need endemic plants , clean air and humus rich soil . Caterpillars attract lot of insect predators hence the cycle is complete. Visitors get to see the free flying butterflies only between September to December , but are more attracted to this place to interact with wildlife artist Yashodan , see his paintings , his unique rooftop garden house with rainwater tanks and the many tiny surprises that the conservatory has to offer.

Having read reviews we decided to visit. We didn't manage to visit in the morning. Our fault. This is the best time to see the butterflies. It's a very beautiful place set into the hillside. You do need to be able to walk up hill...More

Went with high expectations but were completely disappointed after travelling 2 hrs from Calangute. its a small private garden where you see 3 varieties of butterfly. for that they charge you 100 INR per person. Can completely be avoided.More

While "not enough butterflies" is a common complaint , we are surprised this time because currently every morning we have atleast 20 to 25 species of butterflies being spotted. People with patience ( and cameras ) have clicked even upto 47 species in the time...More

We landed up here with great expectations based on reviews from fellow Tripadvisors but were sorely disappointed as this is no more than a glorified kitchen garden behind the owner's house. Our experience could have been so different from others given that it was spring...More

A good place to take your kids along for some watching butterflies but we landed there during the wrong time. The best month is September.

It will be open as per my knowledge. However best time to visit this place for sighting butterflies in large numbers is towards end of monsoon. End-August, September and some times early-October will be good.
