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.

This is the Eden of the Bangalore. It is very greeny and vast. One could go for a walk and at the end of it, feel very energized both in mind and body.

"Maintenance is not well" new review

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Not well maintained, limited food supply and unhygienic too but peaceful. Full of greenery, fresh breeze, overall I feel it should be well taken care of. If at all it was a bit tidy, I would have loved it.

"A green garden which needs lot of maintenance"

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Well, yes not red its all about green but that too diminishing factors like:

The pavements are so much broken and mismanaged that you will hardly feel to go there the second time. Trees and plantation is not dense so you will tend to get tired and thirsty too often. Park benches are far ,too less in number than the average visitors, also they are placed in very few places. Drinking water you need to carry your own else 'goodbye'

They have the battery cars that will take you a round trip ride 9-5 daily but no option if you want a lift or frequency is concerned. Stones out there surely makes it 'Lal Bagh and not because of the roses as it was there during Tippu time.

Boring, boring boring. The lake is fine but no seating arrangements. Stairs are too high and broken. All over the place you will find plastic bottles and such items lying.

Food only at the entrance and toilet only at one place that too near the entrance, I could find other even the locals could not tell me.

Its just a visit once if you like the Flower Show once that's organised yearly otherwise its a waste of time.

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"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months 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.
