Brief History of Brindavan Garden

Brindavan Garden is adjacent to the KRS dam, which was constructed across the River Cauvery in 1932. The development of this garden began in 1927 and successfully concluded in 1932.

Sir Mirza Ismail, the Deewan of Mysuru, conceptualized and commissioned the garden. German botanist and landscape designer Gustav Hermann Krumbiegel designed the garden.

Brindavan Garden today attracts nearly 20 lakh tourists annually.

CNNL aim is to regain the lost glory of Brindavan Garden 

Due to deteriorating pathways, outdated fountain technology, obsolete lighting, inadequate infrastructure, and limited tourist amenities, CNNL has put forth a proposal to transform the tourist facilities at Brindavan Gardens into state-of-the-art amenities. With the passage of time, the garden has lost its enchanting appeal.

CNNL has taken the initiative to revitalize Brindavan Garden with the aspiration of making it the world’s finest garden. The primary goal of this project is to elevate the existing Brindavan Garden to a world-class standard, thereby preserving the heritage of Mysore and the KRS Dam.
