Herbal Garden

The university houses a well-developed medicinal plant garden “Nirma Herbal Wealth” covering a total area of 3356.5 sq. meters with more than 153 varieties of species and 500 plants, extending the scope to carry out research on medicinal plants.

The garden houses a variety of medicinally important herbs, shrubs and trees spread in a well-defined area. The plants grown here are useful in the practical sessions of Pharmacognosy and Herbal Drug Technology. This well-developed medicinal plant garden provides a strong impetus for herbal drug research and imparts training to the students. It supplies crude raw materials and fresh plant specimens essential to carry out herbal drug and natural product-related research by the graduate, postgraduate and doctoral students.

The students of the Institute of Pharmacy use the botanical garden to collect the herbs for their routine practical work as well as for research work during their projects. They collect the plant parts based on their project needs to prepare extract and isolate the important phytoconstituents with therapeutic importance. The collection of plants is also useful to prepare herbarium specimens by undergraduate students.

Some of the trees available at the garden include Terminalia arjuna (Arjuna), Saraca asoca (Ashoka), Moringa oleifera (Drumstick), Azadiracta indica (Neem) and Ficus carica (Anjeer).

Some of the important plant species are Datura metel, Commiphora mukul, Gmelina arborea, Cymbopogon citratus, Vetiveria zizanoids, and Plumbago zeylenica.
