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.

  • 7.0/7

This place is one of the oldest place in Bangalore. There were different places in this Lalbagh, like plantation, hill, botany garden, eatery, and museum. People will definitely love this place. Ticket for simple visiting is 50, for camera 100, and taking vehicle is also allowed with added charges.

"A must visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This is the lung space. The reason why the city is breathing. The beauty is seen during sunrise when you find the joggers enjoying this place. The nursery is amazing. It was designed in Maugham style, on the model of an extensive garden at Sira in Tumkur near Bangalore, this garden was further developed by Tipu Sultan and subsequently by the British and Indian. The Glass house is attractive and the numerous places to just sit and enjoy are amazing.

"Amazing Park of Bangalore"

  • 5.6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The best and largest park right at the center of Bangalore. Nothing comes close to this park cum garden. The flower show during Aug 15th is a sight to behold. It is very peaceful in the mornings and the recent metro station makes it easily accessible

"The Lalo baug- a wonderful visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 23, 2017
The Lalo baug Botanical garden is very beautiful. We saw a mango festival over there and any way it was good to see the numerous varieties of mangoes. There was the lake, the Japanese gardens, the glass house etc. A vehicle was also available which showed us the whole garden with some little amount of charges. It was a great pleasure to visit this attractive garden.

Its very peaceful atmosphere and natural place located in Bangalore. Lalo bagh is near to kalasipalayam or k are market. It should be a refreshing place to your mind. And you can experience rare species of trees and beautiful flowers.

"Botanical Garden at Bengaluru"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 27, 2017
It's a very good large place with clean and well maintained by the authorities.

You can spend whole day seeing different kinds of plants, trees and various types of flower. It's good for elderly person and children to enjoy over there, even newly married couple can go and spend time with the nature's. Peaceful and wonderful location and one more thing you need not take a ride from outside the Lalbagh Gate they will cheat you in a few metres and drop you back to the gate. You can walk and enjoy your journey and for food you can come at the exit point and there is a MTR Hotel located at Lal Bagh Main Road you can have a tasty South Indian food. And if you want to see world best followers show you can visit at Independence day that's starts few days before Indian Independence 15th August and few days after.
