The Garden Guide

Lal Bagh, Bangalore

Lal Bagh means Red Garden. The garden was laid out by Hyder Ali and his son, Tipu Sultan, during the eighteenth century and now has a large collection of tropical plants. There is a glass house (built 1889) which was inspired by the Crystal Palace in London. Though originally conceived as a Mughal garden the garden plan now has a resemblance to the layout of the Crystal Palace Park and to the Victorian Mixed Style.
