Lal Bagh Garden

Lal Bagh Garden

Thousands of aromatic flowers, pleasant greenery, a cool lake and melodious chirping of birds – welcome to Lal Bagh. It is one such popular site in Bangalore, which is amply supported by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) and other historical records. The garden is regarded as one of the most richly diverse Botanical Gardens in south Asia. Located in the southern part of the city, the garden was laid out by Haider Ali in 1740 but later completed by his son Tipu Sultan. He was the one who brought various tropical plants here from all over the world. Apart from that, John Cameron (the Garden's Superintendent in the 1870s) also imported several rare species from the Kew Gardens of London.


Actual Beauty Of The Garden
The garden has an intricate watering system for irrigation. It is wonderfully designed with lawns, flowerbeds, lotus pools and fountains. Some of the rare species of plants are brought from Persia, Afghanistan and France. The entrance to the Park is marked by an equestrian statue of Chamaraja Wodeyar of Mysore.
