We had visited Eden project when we went to Cornwall. The project itself is an amazing creation and put a lot of effort and money to build such an atmosphere. They have recreated the whole tropical and Mediterranean forests inside green house. It has all plants and some specious living in those forests. We could see most of the plants which grow in our tropical regions like Tapioca, banana and some of them are common plants which we see around our home.
I had a healthy discussion with some of my friends about this project. I was arguing for the genuine intention of this project promotion. They are portraying Eden project as a charity work and I could not see any single element which support the charity part. I thoroughly believe that it has been built only for tourism and they are making money out it. Outside the green house is fully commercialized with restaurants. They are selling many kind of books, groceries and traditional ornaments etc with high price. Also we need to pay for the tickets. It is true that there is some cost involved in maintaining the whole thing but may they could have avoided the word charity. Anyway this matter is open for discussion it was only my opinion ! Following is one of the macro shots from Mediterranean Green house.
