It was during my office training that I’ve visited Bangalore. After i finished my training, i had two more days left to come back to Hyderabad. So i wanted to utilize them and explore some places around. And here is one of them, Lal Bhag Botanical Garden! I indeed would call it a Nature Preserve.
Lal Bhag has totally four gates
I entered through the West gate which was closer to the place where I stayed back. There was a little fountain as I entered and a few steps ahead I could see the beautiful lake of this garden. It was quite a large Lake (it covers quarter of the garden’s area) surrounded by huge trees. These trees seemed so geometrical to me.
I spent enough time near the lake enjoying it’s beauty, the trees and flowers around. And suddenly, there was a crow passing by (silly laugh).
Lal Bhag is the largest collection of Tropical trees and plants in India. Walking by the lake, I found huge trees that will surely make the nature lovers stand by. There is a peaceful grassland area too. It is completely surrounded by tall tropical tress.
Moving forward, we can find the famous Glass House of Lal Bhag. A Nandi (Bull) statue and two Elephants statues are present at it’s entrance.
There is also a peninsular here which gives a clear view of the city surrounding the Lal Bhag Garden. On top of this peninsular, we can find a small temple too. This area is called Peninsular Gneiss.
Tropical Plants and Trees
There are many Bonsai plants that age from 30 years to more than 100 years in the Lal Bhag Botanical Garden. Also, the huge tropical trees have majestic royal barks.
After taking a look at all the tress here, i moved on to see the little Lotus pond (though there wasn’t even a single lotus when I visited). But, the pond has many tiny little fish in it. I sat near the pond and played with those tiny fish until the guard had asked me to leave the place (silly laugh).
Lal Bhag Botanical Garden is indeed a Nature Preserve.
It has beautiful plantations of Rose and Hibiscus. It also has a Floral clock, a Band stand, small Fountains and beautiful arch of climber plants all over along the walking lanes.
At the exit of the Garden, beautiful pink blossomed flowers added more beauty.
