This used to be a place with rear plant genus. Now it’s just another mediocre garden. The clock still ticks most of the time though! The lack of care is clearly visible. But this hosts the flower show during republic and independence days (for a week on both occasions), is worth watching. If you love flowers be there in glass house during the flower show.

You do not see much of the green side of Bangalore, the garden city, if you are on a business trip and spend most o your time in Electronic City. Therefore, I planned for the weekend an extended trip to Lal Bagh Botanical Garden. It is really large, green, quiet and beautiful.

I enjoyed very much walking along the green pathes and alleys, beneath trees that have existed for in some cases hundreds of years, like the large Mango tree. There is a big variety of plants with and without flowers. Even many trees are full of flowers. - Some parts of the immense garden were not it their full usage. I suppose that they will flourish again as soon as the rainiy season starts. it is really a big efort undertaken to keep large parts of the park green throughout the year, and with flowers to the sides of the walkways.

It was also a nice occasion for seeing indian families in their weekend activities, playing with the kids on the lawn. The whole park was a bit populated, but much less than I expected for being a Sunday. So you can walk around very peacefully, and even some people were taking a nap in the shadow of the trees.

When I was sitting with my colleague under a tree, several groups also approached us and asked us if they could take a picture together with us. Some of them were also visiting from other cities.

I think in my next visits I will more often spend a day of the weekend there.

Lalbagh is a great botanical garden established by the former ruler Hyderali and his son Tippu Sultan. Very good collection of trees. Mornings and evenings you will see young and old taking a walk. In recent times it is run down a bit.

This botanical garden houses the most rare species of flora and spread over a vast expanse with an in-house glass showroom which hosts the annual flower show. The well maintained lawns and flowering plants and trees make walking in the pathways a pleasant experiene; soothing to the eye and relaxing. The place has a nursery where one can buy saplings of rare and exotic ferns, flowers, and in-door plants. There is an entrance fee which is nominal. The only dissapointment is the upkeep of the toilets - better maintenance would enhance the experience - a higher charge could help in running the place for efficiently. On holidays and weekends the crowds are unmanageable and unruly elements trample on the plants which is a shame.

Bangalore the Garden city...it derives it names from the green belts that is has and this one is in the Heart of the city...wish such places exist in Mumbai too. It has got loads of greens. The best thing about this place that you find peace in the middle of the madness of the rushing crowded city. The best time to visit is Winters of course and also they have a lot of events to do with blooms, roses especially.
