A critical green space in the middle of a modern city, the LalBagh Botanical Gardens were commissioned by the former ruler of Mysore, Hyder Ali, and in 1760 they were subsequently completed by his son Tippu. This botanical refuge is a veritable Garden of Eden that contains numerous species of imported trees, over 1000 species of century old flora, and rare species of plants imported from Persia, Afghanistan, and France. It also houses India’s largest collection of tropical plants, an aquarium, a small lake, and a stone tower erected by Kempegowda, the founder of the city. Another stellar feature is an iconic glass house that has become synonymous with Bangalore itself, which hosts an annual flower show.

The design and layout of the gardens bear a strong resemblance to the fabulous Mughal Gardens complete with lawns, flowerbeds, lotus pools, fountains, and an intricate watering system for irrigation. The Lal Bagh Rock that looms over the park is one of the oldest rock formations on earth, dating back to 3 billion years.
