Brindavan Gardens, Mysore

The Brindavan Gardens is a garden located just 19kms from the heart of Mysore. The garden occupies an area of 60 acres. The garden is maintained by the Cauvery Niravari Nigama, a Government of Karnataka enterprise. The garden is open to general public and a nominal entry-fee is charged.



The work on laying out this garden was started in the year 1927 and completed in 1932. The garden is laid out in 3 terraces which contain water fountains, Ficus trees, foliage plants such as Duranta plumaria and Euphorbia and flowering plants like Celosia, Marigold and bougainvillea.



There is also a lake within the garden with boating facilities available for visitors.  The visitors can enjoy a boat ride around the famous statue of Goddess Kaveri. It is a mesmerizing sight when the whole garden is lit up in the evenings.



This beautiful gardens are laid out below the Krishnaraja Sagar dam built across the river Cauvery. The main attraction of the park is the musical fountain in which bursts of water are synchronized to the music of songs after sunset.
