Rani Bagh - a living symbiosis of built and natural heritage

The Save Rani Bagh Botanical Garden Foundation, a Mumbai-based registered public charitable trust, has toiled since April 2007 to protect, preserve and promote the 160-year-old heritage botanical garden of V.J.B. Udyan, popularly called Rani Bagh. Spread over 60 acres, Mumbai’s largest and most-visited public space, Rani Bagh is a verdant haven, home to 4,131 trees of 256 species belonging to 54 botanical families that supports a rich ecosystem. In addition to carrying out struggle-oriented activities to ensure that the botanical garden’s space and accessibility remain sacrosanct, the Foundation also conducts educational and awareness-raising programmes and takes up initiatives like plantation of uncommon tree species and establishing specialised gardens on the campus. Several programmes have been planned to mark 160 years of the botanical garden in 2022.
