Lalbagh Flower Show August 2010, Bangalore

Every year in the month of January and August, the Lalbagh Gardens at Bangalore hosts Flower Show. If in Bangalore around this time one should not miss the event.

In the month of August, it is usually organized for 10 days from August 6th to 15th. The theme for this year is to show respect to all the martyrs and freedom fighters of our country.

This year the main attraction is the monument India Gate, beautifully made from more than 250,000 roses, a fitting tribute to the Indian soldiers.


On display were around 260 varieties of Anthuriam, Orchids, Celosia and Dianthus among others.

Every day thousands people enjoy the beauty of these flowers on display. It is mostly crowded in the evening on the weekdays. Best time to be in this place is the early afternoon. I had been here
on the weekend afternoon. Even though it was crowded I had enough space to take some snaps.

Very minimal entrance fee is charged for the show. No charges for camera.

Uma belíssima exposição de flores!Pela diversidade de cores e flores e provavelmente perfumes deve ter sido um grande show... O monumento "Portão da Índia" coberto de rosas é de uma criatividade magnífica!

Beautiful series. Must smell wonderful too!

Wow ! That gate is made of flowers -- how amazing! We love visiting flower shows (although I don't think we've ever seen one quite so grand) -- since we don't do any gardening of our own any more.

You did a great job of snapping away without getting the crowds. Sometimes people add to a photo, but not in the case of these glourous blooms....

Jeevan said...
