Nakshatra Van is another important tourist
spot in Ranchi. It is situated just opposite Raj Bhavan. It not only provides
scientific information about Nakshatras, but also has a beautiful garden. It is
believed that each Nakshatra has a unique Devta who is established on the earth
as a tree and therefore each of the 27 Nakshatras is related to a different tree. For example, in the picture
shown above, Rudraksh tree represents Uttar Phalguni Nakshatra. In
addition, there is one section in the garden devoted exclusively to medicinal plants.
