BENGALURU: The Red Fort, India Gate, a tabla, a piano. Replicas of these and other displays found a place at the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens as the 10-day Republic Day flower show opened on Saturday, with more than 80,000 visitors dropping in.

Both adults and children came to the garden and marvelled at not just the floral replicas of historical structures, but also the innovative floral patterns that found place inside the famous Lalbagh Glass House. A whole section was dedicated to musical instruments such as tabla, piano and guitar, and this was a real crowd-puller.

The show was inaugurated by Horticulture Minister Shamanur Shivashankarappa and Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy.
