    I visited Lalbagh couple of times in past and I don't feel bored visiting it again & again. Away from a noisy, busy, crowded and polluted day to day life, its the ideal place to attain peace, relaxation, happiness and most importantly to breath a fresh air. One can gain energy by spending significant time in fresh air, surrounded by nature. A lush green beauty of this garden pleases your eyes and mind. Beautiful pathways encourages you to walk endlessly while listening to melodious chirping of birds and observing a pleasant view of trees shaking their heads in wind. And finally, a variety of colorful blooming flowers in the garden makes your day.

    Very big land scape with trees and plants good to have a whole day but need to walk more. Big lake inside. But rose garden and glass house are empty when I am there. they are preparing it for the next season it seems. By metro its very easy to reach from majestic

    Huge botanical garden in the heart of the city. The park has four entrances. Amazing collection of trees, plants and flowers. Over the years the quality of maintenance has been on a constant downhill. The authorities do not seem to have a clue as to how to leverage this beautiful place and make it better. Flower shows are conducted twice every year during Independence day (Aug 15) and Republic day (Jan 26) in the glass house, which are a must visit!

    I liked this place. Ours was group of 15 so instead of going to mall and spending time in a concrete building this was best option. You can talk have fun and the greenery will also makes you happy.... If you are hungry you will get snacks also .... To reach this place also we have many options .... Even metro station also near by.... So you can spend full day also if you are a big group... And one more thing there is a entry fee of 20 rupees...So I will suggest yes this is a place to spend time peacefully.

    A fantastic place to relax, hangout and even get some food. The lake is nice and sitting and gazing is fun. Early mornings are fantastic for photography and walking. The grape juice inside is amazing. Flower show during republic and independence day are renowned and must visit. During April/May there are stalls for Mangoes.
