Lalbagh flower show is always fun to visit. We look forward to the months of January and August when Lalbagh is at its best. These are also the months when the famed “Lalbagh Flower Show” is held.
The botanical garden will be riot of colours during these two months. Apart from the display of dazzling varieties of flowers inside the Glass house of Lalbagh, the whole garden will see colourful flowers.
The Independence day Flower show will be held from 7 Aug 2020 to 16 Aug 2020.
The Republic day Lalbagh Flower Show just ended on 26 Jan 2020. The theme for Republic Day 2020 Lalbagh flower show was “Swami Vivekanada’s Life & Teachings”.

Last year for the Independence Day show, the theme of the show is ” Saluting the heroes of our Armed Forces”. You will find lovely flower-decked installations inside the glass house. There are also installations to commemorate 85 years of Cinemas. You will find nice vertical gardens, and other flower arrangements both inside and outside the glass house.
Last year the theme was based on the life and works of doyen of Kannada literature Kuvempu.
Let us take you around the flower show and please click on the pictures if you want to see in larger size. All pictures were taken by good friend Malini Narasimha.
