Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bengaluru Reviews
Great garden with great collection of flora and fauna. Very unique flowers and nicely maintained. There were so many trees which are really really old and it looks so good that in densely populated city there is a botanical garden in the heart of the city. A very nice and peaceful place to visit. Morning and evening walkers have free entry. People entering after 9 am need to pay entry fee Rs 20.
This is one of my favourite place in the Bangalore. It has very good feel, so many trees and especially the lake. There were so many trees which are really really old and it looks so good that in densely populated city there is a botanical garden in the heart of the city. For picnics , normal hanging out with friends and colleagues it is good place if they like being in nature . And there are so many places where food stalls are there where u can now enjoy varieties of food. I liked one fruit juice shop inside it they use to sell the drinks just for ₹20 and the juices were so nice and healthy , I like both of the juice grape and mango. If the grape juice is cold they it will taste like wine and u might like drinking more and another item is sweet corn , having sweet corn in such place is like one of the best thing to do.
Great garden with great collection of flora and fauna. Very unique flowers and nicely maintained. When we visited they had some event going on and hence it was crazy crowded due to which we were not able to enjoy to the fullest. I would recommend not to go during any such fest. It has a lake which is beautiful. Very nice picnic spot, family friendly. You can go with your family and enjoy. Also there is a minimal 20-30 Rs. per person entry fee.
Great place with good historical context. Has many really old trees and it’s a treat to watch those really big, high, wide spread trees. Lake is nice, neat and serene. Good place to go and relax and walk.. the buggy ride is good fun while it covers the entire park. Costs Rs 100 per person. The main attraction is closed most days and hence is not the main attraction. A must go once when in Bangalore
Worth spending time here. A very beautiful garden which has spread across over 240 acres. Well maintained too. Best time to visit is during flower show which happens twice in an year. Only concern is all the items are over charged here as a water bottle costs you more than 50%, so as other items. It's good if they control these prices. Otherwise a good place to spend time.
