Karachi gets a botanical garden

Karachi becomes the first city of Pakistan to have a botanical garden. A city where every empty land is looked upon with greedy eyes and drooling mouths to build something on it, this garden seems to be a bold initiative taken by the Karachi University.
Built on 35 acre of land, the garden has 2000 species of plants from tropical temperature and alpine climates and will be opened for public in a months time.
The garden has seven sections, with Lotus, Cactus, desert rose. Hopes are that this green piece of land will not only add to the beauty of the city but will equally be used for scientific research by botany students.
