Lalbagh Botanical Garden


The scent of the roses,
The descent of the hillock,
The beauty of the lake,
The tick tock of the clock,
Makes me feel the air,the air
which is unpolluted,the air which is pure
The air which is in the center of the city
yet unexplored,oh Lalbagh
You're beautiful
-Anki

Gates of Lalbagh Botanical Garden




The Western Gate of Lalbagh


Lal Bagh has four gates. The western gate is situated near Siddapur Circle. One can enter this gate and enjoy the silvan atmosphere of the garden. Outside, touching the compound gate, is Krumbigal Road. The other side of the road touches the compound wall of R.V.College. The National College, Maharashtra Vidyalay, Chikkamavalli and Doddamavalli are nearby. The other side road goes to 'Krishna rao road', where you can see The Indian Institute of World Culture, a beautiful library and a fine auditorium, where there will be a programme every week. Farther south Model House street, and the Yediyur Terminus are the points.


The Eastern Gate of Lalbagh


This is a wide road and for parking the vehicles it is the ideal place. If you happen to come from the Ashoka Pillar side, Jayanagar is close by.


The Southern Gate of Lalbagh


From this gate one can reach Basavanagudi.


The Northern Gate of Lalbagh


This is a fairly wide and big road. If you go straight, the Glass House is to be seen. All the important functions, exhibitions' workshops, and other programmes held from time to time, are arranged at Glass House, Lal baugh. This is the main exit as well.


Wat Anki Says??




Ever felt like "I live in this city,I eat I sleep I drink yet I am a complete stranger".Yes,I am talking about lives of most of us.So one day when I thought of discovering the old charm "the garden city" I didn't know it would turn out to be this beautiful.Bangalore was once known as the garden city,so there's got to be gardens everywhere.I reached LalBagh Botanical Garden at around 07:30 am and yes,the park was not deserted at that time.The only days I get up at 07:30 is when I have to watch a morning movie at INOX(Rs 80 doesn't hurt my wallet!!) but I never knew that Bangalore wakes up early in the morning,the fact that was very much visible right here.
