What better place to visit than the colorful gardens as a last stop of my tour? The Lal Bhag Botanical Gardens proved to be the best companion to my camera and my blog today. While I rapidly click away the lovely flowers I am surrounded by, let me unfold to you the beauty that stood before me.
What was once the Private Garden of King Hyder Ali and later Tipu Sultan is now a horticulture garden, controlled by the Government of Karnataka. Not only do they perform scientific studies on plant-life, they also help preserve and conserve various varieties of plants. Blending in formal and informal styles, this Royal Garden testifies the beauty of nature over an area of 240 acres in the heart of the city.
The Lalbagh Gardens have earned the name of one of the best gardens of the world in the East, for its layout, scientific wealth, maintenance and scenic beauty. Lalbagh has made it possible fro the Bangalore City to come closer to the beauty of nature.
With well laid out paths and open spaces with shades, the garden is spread across the land with a collection of many types of species of plants, calling for a plethora of nature lovers.
The Lalbagh is open to public access from morning 6 to evening 7 on a daily basis all year round. The entire structure of the garden is such that all necessary facilities are accessible with ease.
Bi Annual Flower shows are conducted in the months of January and August to highlight the events of Republic day and Independence Day. Although photography is allowed to an extent, videography is prohibited on the grounds that constant exposure to the flashes and streaming can cause the greenery to lose its lifespan.
Walking down the paths, laden with gorgeous colored flowers, fresh greenery all around, I dread my return to my hometown. I try to make as many memories I can, so that not only can I cherish them for the years to come, but also share them with you through my blog.
