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.

  • Posted 5 days ago
Worth for a long walk with nice lake and super flower show. Think if people are planning for morning walk, for an entire park take almost 2 hours to cover.

"Lovely for a day trip" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Went for a 3 hour walk on a wintry morning. Once you are past the built up areas and the manicured gardens, head for the lake. The walk around the lake is invigorating. Find a seat on one of the benches scattered around the lake, especially in the wooded glen on the far end of the lake. The place was filled with families and canoodling couples. A magical Bangalore day.

The garden is in the main city and provides a calm and cool place within the city. The battery operated car is a must which tours the garden in approx. 45 mins.

"Nice nature park"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Last month I visited Lal Bagh, I have no word to explain, It's biggest nature park. Good for couples and Nature lovers but not so great for kids and best peace place. Best time to visit is when some flower show took place, it's beautiful garden in India. Which must be seen by everyone at least once.
