  • It's a pleasure to watch nature at it's best. Rare combination of nature and man made architecture. The glass house is a nice place. Best place for a week end getaway with the family and friends and especially kids. Lots of floral arrangements give you a soothing feeling. Lots of places to see. Snacks and drinks and coconut shop available.
  • It's a beautiful garden in the middle of a busy suburb. It's well tended and clean. It has interesting structures of historical and geological importance as well. The granite monolith is an interesting structure. Access to the place is easy . An ideal place for a relaxing stroll . A treasure trove for botanists and biology students.
  • I visited Lalbagh during the week of Indian Republic day (around January 26). During that week, flower show and exhibition was held at Lalbagh, it was very beautiful treat to my visual senses. Apart from that place is very peaceful amidst the city giving you close to nature experience. The place will give you relaxing and calming experience while having walk under shadow of trees around the lake.
  • This place is quite and calm. Although not much maintained still it serves the purpose of A refreshing peaceful walk in the middle of the city. There's a small lake, a botanical garden, white and green house. The lake is sometimes open for a pedal boating but It's pretty much once in a blue moon. If you love peace and serenity this is a place to go in Bangalore.
  • Lalbagh is one of the well maintained botanical garden in Bangalore and has a lot of History behind it. It is believed to have been commissioned in 18th century. One can find a lot of rare trees and plants. A place where you find lot of birds and at times, rare species of them too. Regular flower shows are conducted at Lalbagh , where lot of crowd gather to look at the same. The park also has Glass house , a lake which attracts several birds and a wooden stage near the glass house where few events are conducted. Early mornings and evenings are the best time to visit.
