These gardens are on the road between Jakarta and Yogyakarta, by the presidential palace at Bogor.  Built by one of Java's Dutch Governor Generals, and populated with plants but a Dutch botanist, they cover 80 hectares, and were used as a green house to propagate plants to distribute though out Indonesia.  They're still a major botanical research centre today – boasting 15,000 species of plant, both on land and sprouting from the many ponds and streams.  The orchid house has more than 3,000 different varieties and the palm avenues have more than 400 kinds of palm.
