Flower show at Lalbagh Bangalore.

by Harish Mohan on Aug.16, 2010, under Flowers

Every year lalbagh hosts a beautiful flower exhibition during this time of the year.Though i have been in Bangalore from almost a decade now,but never got a chance to go to the flower show.This weekend myself along with one of my friend visited lalbagh.
Lalbagh is one of the main attractions of Bangalore now.Lalbagh is currently under the aegis of the Directorate of Horticulture, Government of Karnataka. The Directorate is housed amidst the splendid environs of the botanical garden. Today it has been an internationally renowned centre for scientific study of plants and botanical artwork and also conservation of plants.

We spent quite some time shooting the flowers here.

We were quite early at the venue so was not allowed in to the main hall but the flowers outside itself kept us very busy.

Lalbagh, Bangalore pics

by Harish Mohan on Aug.16, 2010, under Fun Shots

This weekend went out with one of my friend and a fellow photographer for a Photo walk.We started off quite early in the morning and selected lalbagh as our destination.We were expecting some joggers only in the park but when we went there we were greeted by a huge crowd.I guess bangaloreans have become too health conscious & the entire park was kind of crowded with people.

The Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore is of royal origin and was started initially as a private garden in an area of 40 acres by Hyder Ali, one of the most famous rulers of old Mysore in 1760. Initially designed in Mughal style, on the model of an extensive garden at Sira in Tumkur near Bangalore, this garden was further developed by Hyder Ali’s son Tipu Sultan and subsequently by the British and Indian doyens of horticulture by extension of area and addition of a number of plant species.

The park is always a treat to the eyes with lush green surroundings

This park also hosts a large lake which acts as waterbody to a lot of birds.

When we visited there were a few shops which displayed some clay art models .
