Dating back to the period when the Mughal period was at its apogee. Laid up in several terraces with 410 fountains, it is like a Persian paradise garden in style. We came across several newly weds strolling around having pictures taken, whilst displaying their richly decorated wedding dresses and suits. Going there was magic and more so because the sun was setting.

A splendid green and vast place including lawns and scenes that soothe human mind and heart. I love this place. I always try to spare 2-3 hours for this place with my family. It reminds of the Mughal grandeur and the royal lifestyle of that dynasty. At the same time it is a marvel of architecture of the past that is amazing indeed. The down side is that in such places the shops/restaurants etc should be set up very carefully and wisely so that it does not affect negatively the beauty of the garden but that is not the case here.

Fantastic place, recently restored. They will run the fountains if you ask in advance. The plumbing is a bit delicate. We visited in the evening when the Mughal rulers would have liked to come, taking a very old lady in a wheelchair. The staff were most helpful, pushing her up and down the elephant ramps. It is the last complete, remaining formal garden, based on the Islamic concept of Paradise. There are others in the world, but this is complete, and restored to its original appearance

This garden unfolds as one walks in next to a reflecting pond going from the Queen’s garden to the Royal one and down below the commoners’. The most magnificent is the Royal one with a marble tablet for a running waterfall when it’s working, a central place for Emperor Shah Jahan himself and places of musicians to play with their songs sliding over the surface of the reflecting pond on a warm summer’s evening. On the UNESCO World Heritage Site and built in 1641, it has a long history. Note the picture of our self-appointed guide who has some limited information to share but tends to be somewhat repetitive. Now Shalimar Gardens is rather neglected but worth seeing and walking anyway as one dreams of a time when it was in its fully glory.

This is a historical and beautiful gardens built by Mughals. Exactly the same gardens had been built by Mughals in Srinagar of Occupied Kashmir. Originally it was consist of seven levels but due to negligence major portions of gardens perished. The fountains and streams are master piece of architecture. Although overhead train's platforms affected the outer view of the gardens yet its huge and beautifully construced boundary walls are standing with Grace.
