Lalbagh Botanical Garden is one of Bangalore's leading tourist attractions and one of the city's most popular green spaces. Creation of the garden was commissioned in 1760 by Hyder Ali who wanted to build a classic Mughal garden. However, he died before the work was completed and his mission was taken on by Tipu Sultan, his son. The gardens have a total area of 240 acres and contain more than a thousand different plants. The centrepiece of the gardens is a grand glass greenhouse which was modelled on London's Crystal Palace. Another highlight of the gardens is the tower's built by Kempe Gowda, the founder of Bangalore. The gardens open daily from 6 am to 7 pm and a small fee applies except early in the morning and for the last hour of opening when entrance is free to encourage joggers and walkers to use the park. The biggest event of the year is the annual flower show which takes place around Republic Day (January 26th). Regular entertainment events such as musical recitals, folk dances and plays are staged throughout the year.
