Taipei Botanical Garden


The Taipei Botanical Garden (Chinese: 臺北植物園; pinyin: Táiběi Zhíwùyuán) is located in the Nanhai Academy on Nanhai Road in Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan. The Botanical Garden covers an area of about 15 hectares and includes over 1,500 plant species.

The Taipei Botanical Garden was originally established during Japanese rule in 1921, although the garden itself has been in existence since 1896. It is maintained by the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute. In 1930, there were 1,129 species in the garden, serving largely academic research and natural sciences. However, the garden was deserted during World War II. After the war, the garden was rearranged and new plants were introduced.
