Lal Bagh

This splendid botanical garden, laid out by Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan, contains over 1,000 species of rare flora in its enormous grounds. The name Lal Bagh means 'red garden', in tribute to its celebrated red roses. The centrepiece of Lal Bagh is the Glass House, which hosts an annual flower show and is modelled after London's Crystal Palace.
