1.    Choose the day- Choose the day of your visit wisely to avoid any rush and long queues. Weekdays are best but early visits (Around 10 am) on the weekends can also save you to some instance.

2.    Reach the exact gate- By the term exact gate, we mean that the entry is allowed from Gate number 35(Situated on Church Road) and reaching there directly will save you from the hassle of being here and there searching for the possible entry.

3.    Understand the Queues- There are separate Cloakroom and Entrance Queues. Without this knowledge, you might end up stepping out of the entry line at your turn after the long wait, to get your stuff submitted at the cloakroom, and no doubt, the Result is a frustrated mood.

4.    Walk along the q-managers- This is the best way to move in a queue without disturbing others. The q-manager not only guides you along the way but also helps in maintaining discipline in the moving lines.

5.    Avoid carrying too much stuff- To avoid standing for a long time in the cloakroom queue, the one best thing you can do is to carry minimal stuff with you. Here, by the word minimal stuff we strictly mean wallet and the mobile phone. No other things like water bottles, food items, bags, etc. are allowed inside the premises.

6.    Do not jump off the queues- Jumping the queue and rushing through your way can lead to verbal fights among the visitors which are not only disturbing but also have the tendency to spoil the moods for the whole remaining day. So try to be in queues and admire the beauty with patience.

7.    Follow the guidelines- There are security personnel guiding visitors about the do’s and don’ts of the garden. They will tell you where and where not to go. Following their instructions will save you from rule violation troubles. You should also follow the instructions or messages written on signboards to avoid any confusion.
