The Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens, laid out by Hyder Ali is located on the southern fringes of the city. It holds a number of flower shows, especially during the Republic Day (26th January). They have over 1000 species of flora. The Glass House, modeled on London's Crystal Palace, is the center of attraction. Hyder Ali laid out these famous botanical gardens and his son added horticultural wealth to them by importing trees and plants from several countries. This is a beautiful 2400-acre park. Of all the good that Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan did, this must be the best. The Lalbagh Gardens were commissioned by the 18th century and over the years it acquired India first lawn-clock and the subcontinent largest collection of rare plants. The garden also has trees that are over 100 years old.
