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.

"Must visit if you are a nature lover" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Lalbagh is a must visit place for all nature lovers. It is a vast park with big trees many of which are more than 100 years old. It is a good place even to take a stroll, jog, or simply sit and relax.

If you are looking to enjoy nature in Bangalore calmly with your loved ones, this is the right place you. This beautiful garden is spread over 240 acres. It is place where you can just sit back and relax and enjoy Mother Nature. Just take a walk in the park to relief your stress. A must see for the nature lovers. Entry fee is nominal, just Rs 10 for adults.

"Beautiful Garden"

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Pleasant experience if one has to chill inside a city. Can travel at ones own pace. I found the rocks a great place to click pictures. Ideal for a couple to talk and spend quality time in a city. Other visitors tend to be inquisitive but its not as bad as other places.

"One of the best places to visit in the Garden City"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Lal Bagh located near Shathinagar is a very good place to visit. A very silent and scenic place surrounded with greenery. The lake in the centre of the garden has lots of migratory birds to be seen though there is no provision to go for boating. Children will love visiting this place.

"Fabulous garden I visited in recent times"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Lalbagh Botanical Garden is nicely created with large area for public to visit and inside garden something new to lookout for. What is most remarkable about this garden is well maintained clean and one could easily get peace of mind. If you need a break from busy traffic or are on route to another attraction, make this one of the stops. This rather large area if full of plants and animals, has a large pool, old Victorian plant house, some long avenues, old trees and a lot of people enjoying it.
