  • I spent a couple of hours in this garden this week. To be honest it’s pretty run down by Botanical Gardens standards- reasonably free of rubbish compared to the rest of Bengaluru. But it’s nothing spe...  more »
  • Unfortunately, Lalbagh Botanical Garden is rather poorly maintained, with the consequence that some parts are littered with trash and some vegetation clearly suffers from lack of care. That's the main...  more »
  • Lalbagh is good place to be. There is entry fees and parking fees. The entry gate is crowded with autos and traffics. There are more than two entry gates. There is also battery operated vehicle inside...  more »

  • One of the oldest, historic and largest botanical park in India. Variety of trees, plants and flowers across the park. There are many attractions like Bonsai garden, Glass house, Rose Garden and many others. There is a beautiful lake situated in the park. The Peninsular Gneiss Rock situated in the garden is one of the oldest rock formation on earth. It is believed to be 3000 million years old.
  • Thai is one of the big parks in Bangalore in English gardening style. With a lake and tropical trees and plants. The granite quarry at one corner offers a unique type of rock. Nice place to spend some time with family and friends. Parking is available at some gates. Don't miss the street food available in the park.
  • It is situated in south Bangalore. It is well known among neighbouring states as people throng the place for flower shows conducted during Jan and Aug every year. It also has a lake which is well maintained. You can see people coming to Lalbagh for early morning exercises and evening strolls too. It is a place where families come over to have a nice time. Professional photographers come for pre and post wedding shoots. Amateur photographers come to try and prune their skills.
  • Nice place to enjoy with family. Place is also well maintained. This garden has a wide variety of fauna. You can spend a full day here and will not regret it. This place can be compared with the central park of New York. To escape from the hustle of city life you can spend your time here peacefully.
  • This place was beautiful even in winter. I would recommend going here if you are looking for a great park to stroll through. I noticed some signs outside that had pictures of local robbers, but was never confronted with a single incident in this park (knock on wood for you). The layout was so well done you know people care when they take care of this place.
