History and Developments

Behind every monumental achievements there is a visionary: The saga of JNTBGRI also speaks the same story.
Prof. A. Abraham, a visionary and a great Botanist, conceived the idea of establishing a Jawaharlal Nehru Botanic Garden and Research Institute to study and conserve the rare and vanishing wild plant genetic resources of the country.

Kindled by the spirit of his concept, the Government of Kerala took a far sighted decision resulting in the establishment of Jawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanic Garden & Research Institute (JNTBGRI) as an autonomous organisation at Thiruvananthapuram, the capital.
