Few enthusiasts formed ‘Friends Bonsai Society’ a Bonsai study group at Hyderabad, India in 1986.Society has steadily grown in number and stature. Now well recognized with affiliation to the Bonsai Study Group of Indo-Japanese Association, Mumbai India.

Main objectives of the study group were to promote awareness and better understanding towards the newly introduced concept of Bonsai art among the people and make them appreciate it.

These objectives have been successfully accomplished and our efforts were officially recognized when The Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA) entrusted us the responsibility and honor to create a permanent Bonsai Display at prestigious N. T. Ramarao, (Popular late Chief Minister) Memorial Park in Hyderabad. Challenge was accepted. With artistic imagination and hard work project could be completed in six months.

Approximately 3,000sq feet of land in this park has been designed for Bonsai Display and named BONSAI WONDER. Members of our group enthusiastically contributed more than 100 best Bonsai in various styles and species from their personal collection. Most of the Bonsai are of local tropical varieties, not very exotic. The different species of Ficus family are in more number. Some fruit bearing Bonsai like mango, pomegranate, oranges, and guava are purposely on display for viewer’s enjoyment. There are flowering Bonsai too, which makes the display colorful. Bonsai stand made of logs of dried coconut palm are arranged around an artificially made pond at different levels to create natural atmosphere. Screen to serve as backgrounds are made of Bamboo sticks that blend with bridge and other Bamboo decor. A brief information and nameplate, arranged next to each Bonsai to further trigger interest of the visitors. Though the whole display might not be compared with international standard, but the ensemble in total has created pleasant effect.

Being first of its kind in city BONSAI WONDER is now a special attraction to the visitors of NTR park, It has also received acclamation from the visitors through out India and claimed to be the only well maintained Bonsai display at Public place.

Apart from wide appreciations, it contribute highest amount of satisfaction towards our group.
