Lalbagh Gardens - Bonsai, Bangalore

Inside the Lalbagh Gardens at Bangalore (State: Karnataka) the Bonsai Park is spread across 2.5 acres.

The various Bonsai trees are kept on the benches arranged in a particular format making it convenient for public.

There are around 500 bonsai plants aging from 5 to 35 years. Trees such as Jackfruit, Tamarind, Banyan tree etc., here are grown in pots in the miniature form.

The Bonsai Park is entered through the the 40-foot-high pagoda gate.
Bonsai Park was opened for public from the first half of the year 2011.

What a great idea for a park - I would love visiting it and seeing all the different bonsai. Love your collage.

This makes me smile remembering the miniature bonsai tree I gave my grandmother one year. It was very special to her, but she couldn't keep it going long. Still she kept the garden elements...a small bench and a miniature temple. So much of interest in your corner!

It's always interesting to see a bonsai...and if it's around 500 bonsai aging from 5-35, that's exciting to see.

It is always a fascination to see how those little trees can be so old and yet so small. Lovely mosaic. V

That first shot is a great one of the Bonsai trees. It is interesting ti read that you all grow banyans in containers. In Florida where I grew up there were huge! I have never heard of a miniature one...so interesting. I always learn something new when I visit your blog :-)

Indrani said...

Yes, wonderful place, with a great collection.

Vernz said...

HI Rajesh.. love to see those miniature trees too, but thinking about how they suffer just to give us this beauty makes me sad..

Hazel said...

That plant (first shot) is growing sideward, doesn't it? We call pitogo in our part of the world.

Bonsai plants always attracted me. Lovely photos.

Hey.. This is my favorite place. Whenever I get time, I uses to be here. Lovely clicks!

Love the gate, love the garden. I appreciate bonsai much more since I learned from a friend who began growing - if that's the right term - them a few years back.

Arpana said...

It's a sheer delight to watch bonshai!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

That would be a fun place; I've always liked Bonsai plants!

Fascinating plants, they are beautiful when trained in their shapes. They will be able to fit a lot of bonsai in 2.5 acres.

These Bonsai plants are amazing, and the entrance to the park is very impressive. I would love to be able to see all those plants in person, but I do enjoy your photos.

Sumandebray said...

Good to know about this place. But is it right to make a Bonsai tree... considering that trees are living creatures!!

Rajesh, thank you for these lovely pictures. Bonzai are so beautiful, carefully tended and "crafted," but completely of Nature and of the earth. If you want to see my ABC, it's about American politics:
