One of the main tourist attractions in Bengaluru, Lalbagh is an internationally renowned centre for botanical artwork, scientific study of plants and also conservation of plants. The lush green garden is spread over an area of 240 acres in the heart of the city with nearly 1,854 species of plants and 673 genera. The collection of the plants here has made it a veritable treasure house of plants. Originally commissioned by Hyder Ali, the ruler of Mysore, it was later finished by his son Tipu Sultan. Hyder Ali laid out this popular botanical garden and his son added horticultural wealth to them by importing trees and plants from countries all over the world.
Commissioned in the 18th century, it has acquired the subcontinent's largest collection of rare plants and India's first lawn-clock over the years. The garden features the famous glass house which hosts an annual flower show, it also houses India's largest collection of tropical plants, an aquarium and a lake within the premises.

You can walk or take a ride on a buggy to see the park! It's has over 120 different species of rose bushes, many plants and huge fruiting trees. There is a cost of 350 rupees to enter and parking is available. Many people selling foods and drinks! You are not allowed to take plastic water bottles in the park! Handicapped accessable and has clean restrooms! A guide will explain about certain plants and trees for 100 rupees! The best time to see the garden would be during India's Spring season, in January - March, when plants are blooming! I enjoyed going to this Botanical garden, but wished it had been a different time of the year visiting. You do not have to tip your guides because you paid for the ticket to enter and for your ride. I noticed the only people the guide asked tips from were the foreigners. So remember, it's not mandatory!
