About Shalimar Bagh in Srinagar

One of the most famous Mughal gardens in the Kashmir valley, Shalimar Bagh in Srinagar has become the crown of Srinagar today. Built by the Mughal Emperor Jahangir as a symbol of love for his beloved wife Nur Jahan, this garden is an apt representation of the word ‘Shalimar’ that translates to ‘Abode of Love’.

The garden is nestled on the banks of the serene Dal Lake and has lush green terraced lawns, fountains, pools, flower beds and rows upon rows of chinar trees and pavilions.

Architectural Marvel

Shalimar Bagh was constructed on flat land along the Dal Lake and has a rectangular central layout with four radiating arms. It offers splendid views of the lake and the shallow terraces.

There are three main terraces that display a colorful picture. The first terrace is also known as the Diwan-e-Aam while the second is known as the Diwan-e-Khas. The third terrace is the Zenana gaden. Water fountain supply water to each Chinar lined terrace.

The garden houses innumerable varieties of flora that offer a marvelous play of colors when the seasons change. The Shah Nahar water canal in the garden is fed by water from the Dal Lake and runs through the center of the garden.

Chini Khanas

These arched niches render a distinct and unique feature to the terraced gardens of Srinagar Shalimar Bagh. Once lit with oil lamps to give the cascading water an exotic look, these niches now house pots with brightly colored flowers.

Baradari

Yet another distinct architectural feature, the four exquisite doors of the Baradari in the garden complex are rumored to be ruins of old temples that were demolished by Shah Jahan.

When to visit?

Most tourists flock in large numbers during spring and autumn when the garden is brimming with color and life.

    Khansaad's 7 days trip to Srinagar

    I was always in a dilemma whether a travel agency would provide me a good service because a lot of my friends and family faced false commitments and misleading claims. Despite of that I chose going on a trip with travel triangle and to my surprise they provided me exemplary service and everything was well planned and executed. In a nutshell i would say “ Paisa vasool” experience I would also like to mention and give my special thanks to Team Zipgo Travels, Aaliya Madam And Aijaz Sir Best part of my trip was in Gulmarg where I enjoyed a number of snow sporting activities

    Kumar's 7 days trip to Srinagar

    The trip was a lifetime experience and the Kashmiri people are most welcoming to the tourists. All the activities done during the trip was very enjoyable and memorable, some adventurous too. Hotels were top notch expect for the stay in Phalgam at phalgam retreat. Driver shahid was very friendly and guided us very well at all stages of the journey. Travel Agent Aasif from Holiday Planner was very helpful and was always approachable at any time of the day. He made sure that all the arrangements were taken care of as per our needs. Will do recommend him for any other trips in the future.

    Nikhil's 8 days trip to Srinagar

    The travel home organized our trip to Kashmir well Hotels, Driver + Guide, and the plan was really good. We were safe there. Kashmir is a tricky place, when people come to know you are a tourist they will try to loots you. (So do a ground survey about the price or place /activity/things you do) I recommend spending more time at Gulmarg and can avoid Sonamarg (we got cheated there) Do shop only from Local market (lal chowk) not from 'showrooms' in the tourist locations.
