Karnataka boasts to be the first state in the country to have a separate Horticulture Department. Many years later, other states started to follow us. The state may, therefore, made tremendous progress on several horticultural fronts, be it fruits or vegetables or flowers or crops of plants. Karnataka is now called as the Horticulture State of India. Learn more about the history of Lalbagh here from the government website: Click here
We all have heard a lot about this magnificent place in Bangalore. Any traveller who hits our Bangalore would not miss paying a visit here.
While all the travellers come here as a tourist spot, this is a place to many. A hangout for senior citizens in the morning & evening. A jogger’s track. Kid’s play area, family get-togethers, photographer’s paradise. While a lot of authors, poets come here as an inspiration to write poems, students come here to study. This is a hub for conducting workshops like meditation, yoga retreats, arts, street plays and many more.
The horticulture sells seasonal fruits like Mangoes, apples, jackfruits, berries and a lot more. They hold a Mela/fair from farmer to consumer at a reasonable price every year. [Basic info at the end of the article].
