      There are many gardens in Bangalore (now called Bengaluru) which is known as the Garden City. However, the most notable among them is the Lalbagh Botanical Garden which is spread over 240 acres, and was founded in 1760. Here you can find 1854 species of plants/trees, 673 genera and 890 cultivars.

      The main attractions of the garden are Kempe Gowda Tower, Glasshouse, Lalbagh Lake, Lotus pond, Rosary, the Band Stand, and the Floral Clock. The glasshouse was built in 1889 to commemorate the visit of Prince


      Albert of Wales to Bangalore.

      The Garden is rightly called the lung space of Bangalore for its sprawling size with its numerous trees. I found two giant Eucalyptus trees, pretty old and awe-inspiring.

      There is also one huge Silk Cotton tree whose thick roots are spread all around above the ground, and is the cynosure of the garden. The Rose Garden is not well-maintained, so also the Japanese garden and the Bonsai park.

      Glasshouse is really worth seeing with its high glass roof and glass walls, which ...


      • is used for conducting Annual Flower Shows. The Floral Clock in the Garden has a diameter of seven metres and is functional.

        You could see a lot of rare species of trees here, some of which are in full blossom and present an enchanting sight to the visitors, and it is a pleasure to stroll around the garden or just relax under the thick foliage of the trees. Lalbagh Lake with its island presents a beautiful sight and we are greeted by the cool breeze during

        hot sun, as we walk along its banks.

        Any visitor visiting Bangalore will find it a pleasant experience to spend at least two hours in the garden. However, if you are visiting the Garden with your adolescent children, beware! Sitting or lying under the shade of the trees, on wooden benches, are young couples or adolescent boys and girls making love to each other by kissing, hugging or fondling, unmindful of the gazing public.

        Truly, the Lalbagh Garden could well be described as the lovers’ paradise.
