The flower show boasts a captivating assortment of local and exotic flowers, including red salvia, zinnia, toraneum, celosia, and petunia, providing a visually stunning experience for visitors. A bamboo replica of the renowned Vachana concerts is also on display, showcasing the rich cultural heritage associated with Basavanna’s teachings.

The Glass House is adorned with statues of other influential Vachana poets from the 12th century, such as Akkamahadevi, Neelambike, Sharane Satyakka, Akka Nagalambike, Hadapada Appanna, Madivala Machideva, Samagara Haralayya, Amigara Chowdayya, and Baachikaayada Basavanna.

With expectations of over 10 lakh visitors in the next 10 days, the Republic Day flower show promises to be an enchanting experience for both Bengalureans and tourists.
