Lalbagh Botanical Garden is located in the heart of Bangalore city, about 4 km from the State Legislature – the Vidhana Soudha.Lalbagh remains open daily from 6.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. throughout the year, Biannual flower shows are organized every year in January and August on the occasion of the Republic Day and Independence Day celebrations.




 The garden is an institution of botanical and environmental importance, a treasure house of our state and nation, also an important lung space of Bangalore.


Recently it has been improved & well maintained but the lotus pond needs more maintenance.


Lots of flora & fauna around this place.


The Pariah kites usually settle down near the lake around 9:30am when there are less morning walkers around & its fascinating to see them bathing & preening.


My Favourites were White Throated Kingfisher, Oriental Oriole, Koels & Coppersmith Barbet.

I can say a good place for birding beginners. Lalbagh is one among bird census locations of Bangalore, many migratory birds & butterflies can be seen during December to February.
