LALBAG BOTANICAL GARDEN 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,this garden was further developed by Hyder Aliís 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..Lalbagh was given the status of a Government Botanical Garden in 1856, and since then, it has been an internationally renowned centre for scientific study of plants and botanical artwork and also conservation of plants..personally,i spend many a times there alone,walking through the rose garden..or by the lotus lake.
