Lalbagh Botanical Gardens
The many tropical plants and exotic flowers are a delight for nature lovers, and with over 50 species of birds, this is a popular spot for bird watchers. One of the best-known landmarks is the greenhouse, which was modeled after London’s former Crystal Palace. The Lalbagh Rock, a large hillock made of granite, is another popular attraction: visitors like to climb to the small temple at the top.
The Sunday morning heritage walk is popular with nature enthusiasts who would like to learn about the garden’s many exotic species of plants and trees. Join naturalist Vijay Thiruvady at 7am at the base of the Lalbagh Rock.
The bi-annual Lalbagh Flower Show is a popular event, drawing huge crowds who come to ohh and ahh at the spectacular flower arrangements on each Republic Day (26 January) and Independence Day (15 August).
Opening hours: from 6am to 7pm. Entrance is free before 9am and after 6pm. Between these times, there is an entry fee of 10 Rs.
