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.

"Glass House not to be missed" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I had visited this park one year ago. It has very good maintenance with wonderful glass house. Everyone should visit the glass house and a temple on a little hill located near front gate. Its a very large park as one day is not enough to visit the entire park by walking. So there by morning itself will let you to visit the entire botanical garden.

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month 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.
