We are always on the lookout for interesting places to capture some good photographs. After coming across a video and a post on Bayan Botanical Garden, I thought, really, there is a Botanical garden in Kuwait? Isn't that terrific?, Being nature lovers, my husband and I decided this is definitely a place we need to explore with our cameras. So in February, we visited the Botanical Garden on a Thursday since it was open to public only on Thursdays, 9 am to 1 pm. Right now being summer, I am not sure if they've begun to allow visitors during any other time in the late afternoon or during weekend other than Thursday. The Bayan Botanical Garden is a  part of the Bayan Palace. You cannot enter through the main entrance of Bayan Palace. The entrance to the botanical garden is located behind the U.S. Embassy. 

The entrance is free. You have to leave your civil id card with the security officer who will show you the way to the botanical garden. Its a huge sprawling landscaped area where three beautiful green houses stand together. The three green houses are adorned with a beautiful variety of plants, trees, flowers and small man made water falls, that for certain will captivate you visually and nourish your soul. Once you are done inside the green houses, you can walk about in the open landscaped area and enjoy the outdoor landscape, flowers and the central fountain.

The photos I've taken speak for themselves. All I'd like to say is the Bayan Botanical Garden is an absolutely must visit place.
