Lal Bagh (also written as Lalbagh) or Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, is a popular botanical garden in the beautiful city of Bangalore, Karnataka. Known as “the Red Garden” in English, it’s known for having the largest collection of tropical plants in India. A major attraction in the ‘city of garden’, it’s also home to a few species of birds and also has a lake to ensure a good time to visitors.

Hyder Ali, the ruler of Mysore, was the man who originally commissioned the garden and it was his, Tipu Sultan, who got it finished. Visitors flock here in a great number to enjoy the plants and also enjoy two annual flow shows, held respectively on 26 January and 15 August every year. Both these shows are hosted in a glass house, which is also a top draw at the garden.

Lab Bagh is stretched over an acre of 240 acres and is in the south of the city. Home to over 1,000 species of flora, it attracts visitors for its year-round flower shows and also for trees over 100 years old. The garden is aesthetically designed, has a complex watering system for irrigation and pleases guests for fountains, lotus pools, lawns and flowerbeds. Do visit this park and enjoy the rich essences of nature!
