The Maharaja Dewan, Sir Mirza Ismail, designed the enchanting garden. This garden is so popular that it attracts almost 2 million tourists every year.

Lalbagh or the Red Garden is a botanical garden that houses India’s largest collection of tropical plants and has four separate entrances. The garden was originally commissioned by Hyder Ali, the ruler of Mysore, and later supplemented by his son Tipu Sultan. The garden design was imported from Mughal and Tipu trees and plants from many countries. The foundation of his iconic house, modeled on the London Crystal Palace, was laid on November 30, 1898, by Prince Albert Victor. On the two special national holidays, the 26th of January (Republic Day) and the 15th of August (Independence Day), there are two annual flower exhibitions. There is a beautiful little lake where many species of birds live. The gardens, which were created in the 18th century, were the first turf clock in India and the largest collection of rare plants of the subcontinent. The rock with the Kempegowda tower is in the middle and it has a complex irrigation system for irrigation. A geological monument to the formation of peninsula gneiss is also a tourist attraction in the gardens.
