If Karnataka is known as the horticultural State of India and Bangalore the Garden City, it is not by accident but because of the labours of a number of dedicated horticulturists over a period of two centuries.

Lalbagh-Sultan's Garden to Public Park delves into the evolution of Lalbagh through five centuries.

Vijay Thiruvady presents a scholarly book on the park's hisotry and how after, Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan, it was helmed by a German missionary, two army men, a Scottish surgeon and six Kew gardeners including two Indians. Having researched extensively into the archives of Royal Botanical Garden, Edinburgh, poured through letters written by the East India Company, and dug into the Karnataka State archives and various contemporary accounts of Mysore, Vijay Thiruvady painstakingly recreates the history of Lalbagh.
