Beautiful woodcarvings at Lalbagh Botanical Garden

I went to visit Lalbagh on 3rd March, and was pleasantly surprised, at the area where the majestic Ficus benjamina trees are (leading from Kempe Gowda’s tower to the Glass Hoouse) being used to set up some beautiful wood carvings, done on solid tree trunks.

And last but…
