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.

"A beautiful place to visit" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 4 days ago
Spread across several acres in the middle of the city, this place is something an urban dweller looks forward to. As the name suggests, there are thousands of varieties of plants and trees with suitable labels around. There is a glass house inside it. There are multiple entry points. Horticulture Director's office is also situated inside the garden. Flower show is a awesome attraction of this park. People come for various purpose here like morning and evening walk, to visit plants, flowers and trees etc.

"Cool, must visit once in a life"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The place is something lovely, best park I ever visited in India. Wonderful location. Motor car for sightseeing is main attraction. If you wish to travel in this motor car, must enter the park through Glass House entry. If you enter through main park, you have to walk 2 km to get the ticket. Well maintained park.

Went there at February end. Not so much to walk and view around. But a good place to relax with so many trees around and breeze. Not at all noisy, peaceful.

"Four entrance garden"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This garden is "located in Bangalore near the court" from which the bus facility will be available for this garden. The entrance fee is nominal and worthful. It will be "crowded with people heavily on Sunday's especially". It is just 2kms away from the court and the main special time to visit this fantastic park is at "Flower Show" at that time this garden will be shown with "different risen flowers of different species of international included", it will be done only once in an year. This park is bodied with water fountain too. So I recommend everyone to visit this place during the show.

"Good place for spending time with family"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I visit this place regularly as it is one of the best place for the morning and evening walk. It is a very nice place to spend with family but at weekend it will be very crowded. So up to me the better to visit this place is "during non-Sundays". In here the "directions boards will be available along the park" and so no guide or anything is needed when entering into it. It is just "3kms from the magistrate court". But the special time to visit this garden is at the time of "flower show". It will "be conducted only once in an year on Spring Season" only. The entry fee is also nominal just 30/- each. Overall it is "garden of international species of flowers and very good experience".

"Very good park to enjoy the nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The park is very good and the climate of Bangalore is awesome. You can enjoy with your family there and it is the best spot for couples. One more good thing is you can carry your outside food in the park, it will feel good having a meal under a tree, hearing birds singing. I had great fun hope you guys also enjoy it.

"Thinker's paradise"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Ideal place to feel free, enjoy nature, relaxation of hectic, tired brain, soothing effect for eyes and overall a rhythmic exercise to our body, well as internal organs, a very good place in the heart of city. Hats off to the staff and all for their co-operation. But needs some more urinals well as sitting benches and open air theatre like place especially near huge rock with display of bringing awareness of using mobiles, footpath, road sense, do's and don't s, habits, helping needy, joining hands to safety by watch and information of strangers to police. Bring awareness of social life etc.

"Best visiting place during January month"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is the nice visiting place in the middle of the Bangalore city and variety of flowers are kept for showing in the "flower show time". The "entry fee is small" though the camera fee is a little bit higher. But it is the place where "we can forget our pressure and feel the pleasure of the nature". Overall it is must visiting place in Bangalore trip to have nature happiness and it is tagged to the every corner of the city with the road transport from it and fro. It is recommended to visit during flower show time that is during January month for the travellers.
