Lalbagh Gardens, Bangalore

Visited Labagh Gardens this morning. Hard work getting in – everybody wants to get into your pocket (or wallet, more like) and our Rickshaw driver seems to have a different programme for us than what we want to do!

However after a tussle over the cost (they wanted 1,000 rupees, we paid 100) we got a ride on buggy which took us round the gardens and it was great fun. A bit bizarre in places – a glasshouse inspired by Crystal Palace, topiary garden, giant model chimpanzees holding signs to the headquarters of the Horticultural Directorate and models of the 7 dwarves surrounding a floral clock sponsored by an engineering firm. All part of the rich tapestry!
