What is Garden 5 Life?
It is not a simple shopping space but a super-large complex shopping cultural space where you can enjoy everything you want , such as shopping, culture, entertainment, food, and rest at the same time. This is where you can realize all the joy of shopping.
The innovation surrounding this infrastructure is really mesmerizing. The ideology of providing a never felt before experience while shopping and exploring this place is tremendous. I for one have been in awe of this place from the first time I have been here.
During many festive occasions across the year, there is theme based decorations all around the complex. The huge dome shaped architecture over the top is multi-colorful light oriented as well. The whole place is a sight to behold during the night time.
