Cubbon Park, also known as Sri Jayachamarajendra Park, confirms Bangalore’s status as the ‘Garden City’. Well-known for its rich flora and numerous iconic buildings and monuments, the park boasts of creative landscapes and well-maintained roads and avenues. Apart from the local residents who visit the park for walking, jogging and relaxing, huge flocks of tourists regularly throng the park to admire its abundant beauty.

Thousands of plants and trees belonging to nearly 100 species adorn the park area. Some popular ones include araucaria, bamboo, artocarpus, millettia, silver oak, schinus molle and delonix. Lotus Pond and innumerable flower beds add beautiful colours to the park area.

Among the most notable historical buildings in the park, Attara Kacheri (High Court), Sheshadri Iyer Memorial Hall, Indira Priyadarshini’s Children Library, Venkatappa Art Gallery, octagonal Bandstand and Government Aquarium are extremely worth visiting. Jawahar Bal Bhawan amusement park (with toy train ride) and State Archaeological Museum (with collections of coins, paintings, sculptures and excavated items) are other attraction you must visit.

Statues of eminent personalities like Queen Victoria and King Edward are the added attractions. Dancing Musical Fountain is one of the recently added attractions. Two wonderful daily shows held here from 07:00 p.m.-07:30 p.m. and 08:00 p.m.-08:30 p.m. (excluding Mondays and second Tuesdays) can leave you mesmerized. The park area restricts motor vehicles between 05:00 a.m. and 08:00 a.m.
