To promote an understanding of the medicinal uses of native plants as PCI/JNTUH guidelines, a Medicinal garden was started in the year 2008 which is located behind the college that provides good ambiance to the campus atmosphere with more than 50 different medicinal plants identified by metal placards. Medicinal Garden was created and maintained by the Department of Pharmacognosy. This medicinal garden will help to bridge the past with the future for our pharmacy learners. Learners, faculty, and staff will care for the garden and they gain invaluable insight into the growth, development, and potential uses of these medicinal plants. The medicinal plants are currently being used for research purposes, classroom instruction, etc. A walkway around the herbal garden has been laid with sand on one side, small stones on another side, grass on the third side, and bare ground on the fourth side. The garden is open for public use from 6 am to 8 pm. The public can walk barefoot to strengthen the relationship between men and soil. These gardens help improve the health outcomes of students, faculty, and others with different needs. We hope that those who walk barefoot around this garden will get benefited from the rich aroma, acupuncture effects, and natural therapy.
