Lal Bagh, one of the main attractions of Bangalore, was commissioned in the year 1760 by Hyder Ali and was completed by his successor Tipu Sultan. Spread over an area of 240 acres, the garden attained status of a Government Botanical Garden in 1856. Situated in the southern part of the city, this botanical garden houses rarest species of plants and trees from India as well as other countries.

Commissioned on the theme of Delhi Mughal Garden, the garden embraces rare plants of Persian, Afghani and French origin. This aesthetically designed garden comprising lotus pools and fountains have an intricate irrigation mechanism for lawns and flowerbeds. Trees and plant species are appropriately labelled for convenient identification.

Among other distinct attractions of the garden is the Lal Bagh Rock, which is around 3000 million years old. At present, Lal Bagh is maintained by the Directorate of Horticulture, Government of Karnataka. A centre for scientific study of plants and botanical artwork, this garden is testament of natural beauty.

Travellers can reach this beautiful garden through different modes of transport, like auto rickshaws and buses. Tourists can also reach the destination by opting for KSRTC buses, which are connected to different parts of the city.

"Located in the heart of the city" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It's located right in the centre of the city and its spread over a very long area. It's just a park so nothing special can be found there. Overall it's good for a early morning walk.

One of the most astonishing place I have ever visited. It's actually a pleasure to the eye. It's most adorable I feel during sunrise and sunset. I would personally recommend you all to just have a glimpse of this heavenly beauty on earth.
