Lalbagh Flower Show - January 2011

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 January, it is usually organized for 10 days from January 17th to 26th. The theme for this year is metro transport system. To ease the traffic in city the metro train project is currently in progress.

This year another attraction at the event is one of the original city gate towers. It is beautifully made from colorful roses.

On display were lot of 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.

That looks amazing - it reminds me of the Keukenhof in Holland. Your "no charges for camera" shows a definite cultural difference - I'm not aware of anything in my country that would charge extra for bringing in a camera.

Oh, your photos are a beautiful stream of spring colors.
I get interested in one of the original city gate towers. I have seen Torana gate in a book which looks like Torii gate of Shinto of Japan.
I do love all of your photos.
Rajesh, thank you.
