Travel Theme: Flowers: Lotus temple

The Lalbagh Botanical Garden spread over 250 acres in the city of Bangalore, India is a  photographer’s and plant lover’s delight . It started out as a private garden(of 40 acres) of  the erstwhile  rulers of  Southern India . It is now a veritable treasure of plants, housing over 1500 species  including many exotic ones from around the world.

The Lalbagh Garden hosts an annual flower  show which attracts over a million people over the 10 day event. Each year, there is a special theme or a main attraction designed. I had visited the flower show a couple of years back and the main attraction  that  year was the creation of a replica of the Lotus Temple in Delhi, using thousands of flowers .
