The Flower Exhibition: IMG_1280I feel myself lucky in experiencing the 200th flower show. The event during Independence day 2014 was for two weeks from 8th August to 17th August. One can enter the flower show from any of the four gates of Lalbagh. The entry fee varied from Rs. 40 to Rs. 50 for an adult and for a child the entry fee is Rs.10 . The cool and sublime weather condition of Bangalore adds to the splendor of the Flower Show in more ways than one way. Undoubtedly, a must visit place for the whole family. This time the theme was “Mysore Palace” and “Mysore Dasara” procession. The Mysore palace has been recreated with 300,000 roses – red, yellow and white. The flower palace is 45-ft long, 12-ft wide and 27-ft high.Flower orientation depict elephants carrying the “golden howdah” and the statue of goddess “Chamundi”. Four horses and six soldiers armed with weapons are also carved out of flowers.   IMG_1252Spider Flower           RoseIMG_1302             Forget Me Not           Bonsai Click Here To See All Pics Of Lalbagh 200th Flower Show
