Above is a picture of a botanical garden in the City of Cape Town South Africa. Named as The Company’s Garden, it was established in 1652 by the Dutch for the production of fruit and vegetables to be supplied to the sailing ships on the long sea route to the east. Some landmarks of the city located here are the Houses of Parliament, the Iziko SA Museum and Planetarium, St George’s Cathedral (which is the seat of the Anglican church in SA), the National Library of SA, the SA National Gallery, the Great Synagogue and Holocaust Centre and Tuynhuys.  There’s a planetarium here as well. The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens spread over 528 hectares matches the world standards. It is a sort of a culture center with bookshop, eating-joints, theme-based gardens such as the fragrance garden and an amphitheatre.
