Lahore’s Lawrence Gardens

Lahore ’s Lawrence Gardens, baptised the Bagh-i-Jinnah in the post-independence era, represent the quintessential Raj ethos.
This was followed by the Agricultural and Horticultural Society Garden, which was the original name of the city’s beloved Lawrence Gardens. The Agriculture Horticulture Society of India established it in 1860 and years later, in 1904, the department of agriculture assumed maintenance responsibilities.
Since 1912, approximately seven acres of the park have been managed by the Government College, Lahore। To this day, it maintains a delightful botanical garden replete with a greenhouse and experimental fields.
