Flowery Red Fort and musical instruments steal hearts at Lalbagh

Lalbagh hosted 201st flower show recently. A peak into the customary show that gives Bengaluru a much-needed flowery break.

The Flower Show organised by the Horticultural Society at Lalbagh for the Republic Day, as usual, stole the hearts of visitors. The main attraction this time was Red Fort, which was created using three lakhs flowers.

Musical instruments made of flowers set up around the Band Stand were an added attraction. This time, tickets were sold online for the show. However, long queues were seen in front of Lalbagh, as people did not see any advantage in going for online ticketing.

The show this time had air surveilance through drones, which proved efficient, when a fire was reportedly spotted by the drone and doused immediately.

An article from Deccan Herald explains how the flowers are kept fresh throughout the 10-day event.

If you have missed going to this show, next flower show will be hosted in August, in Independence Days season.
