"Great to visit during horticulture exhibition"

Great to visit during horticulture exhibition, but even if you are visiting in different period also, it is good to see. Entry fee is little higher which I feel is not justified.

"Environment at its best"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is one of my favourite places in Bangalore. Spread in around 250 acre of land, this garden has preserved natural environment in best possible manner. If possible try to visit early because it becomes more crowded at later part of the day. Lake inside the garden is very scenic. There is 40 minutes cart ride with guide to take the tour of entire facility.

I visited this beautiful place on January 26, 2014; on the same day there was a flower show so it was over crowded but still enjoyed my visit a lot. There were many kinds of flowers on display.
