Republic Day Flower Show 2011

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

Lal Bagh (ಲಾಲ್ ಬಾಗ್) Botanical Gardens is a tourist attraction in Bangalore, the capital of the Southern State of Karnataka, India. Termed as the pendant in the necklace of Bangalore’s gardens, Lal Bagh literally translated into English means ‘The Red Garden’ and the garden is famous for its Glass House that hosts two annual flower shows to coincide with India’s Republic Day (26th January) and Independence Day (15th August). Lal Bagh has secured its place among the gardens of the world and has come to be regarded as one of the best gardens in the East.

 

I visited the Gardens during the Republic Day Flower Show this year and I hope that the images showcased here as well as those contained in the album (link attached below) will offer the reader a glimpse of the visual feast of  vibrantly coloured flowers that were on display.

The main attraction of the Flower Show was the replica of the Kempe Gowda Tower (Kempe Gowda being the founder of the city of Bangalore) which was fabricated completely out of red, yellow and white roses (close to 50,000 in all!!!). The garden surrounds the real tower and visitors can see the tower as they enter the Gardens.
