Lalbagh Gardens

This Sunday morning found us in Lalbagh, Bangalore's central garden space. I loved the wide paths and the grand old trees and the many flowers. Though i am told that it is a lot greener later in the year, after the rains. Spread over 240 acres, it was concieved by Mysore's ruler Hyder Ali in the eighteenth century and later developed further by his son Tipu Sultan and the British. Here are my pictures, i'll write more about individual trees in the days to come.

You must have gone wild taking these lovely pictures. Do give a detailed description about the trees, flowers, plants, weeds, insects......

Most beautiful! I've heard so much about Lalbagh but Bangalore is a city I haven't visited yet.

Have a lovely weekend, Arati!
