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.

    • Trip to Kashmir

      As we reached hotel , the reception staff waited us about one hour inspite of showing booking invoice. In between they dint ask even for water while welcome drink was mentioned in booking invoice. Second day The cab driver carried us to pahalgam while it was not in our tour destnation . there the attitude of horse operators was very rude. At last day the driver asked to come at 10.30 am so that the flight might be boarded at 1.15pm but the driver couldn't reach up to 12.00. so in emergency we hired another taxy to send one family at airport.

      It was good managed by Classic holiday as per our plan. Miss Hina was so supportive till out travel start. We have only concern with TravelTringle who took the convenience charges and not provide us the feedback which they have to do .They just took charges from customer and forget. I had direct contact of travel agent (miss Hina) who has sent me all details on whatsapp. I have not to wait reaponse from Travel tringle executive. So trust on your agent through you have made booking not on traveltringle agents. Overall good trip .... Kashmir is very nice place which is a memorable for us. The good thing is that houseboat was vey nice means more from our expectations. Good behaviour of houseboat person. Will recommend same boat to other.

      All thanks to classic holidays kashmir, specially miss rabiya. She organised the trip perfectly. Iam a travel agent, still i wanted to book this package from local agent in kashmir to ensure safety. As media hyped so much about pullwama attack, so family nd relative was curious nd said no to kashmir, bt i stick to plan. And so do rabiya ensured us safe trip. From start to end trip was great. Travel triangle and classic holidays both organised a trip exactly wat we wanted. Hotel was great , every information was right, driver was very good, i forgot his name. Car was new etios. I went in april so found snow every wre in sonemarg, pahalgam, gulmarg. I thing i like to mention, union taxi and pony agents/workers are worse, thy dont care abt tourist, thy just want to grab money. U can reach sonemarg pahalgam and many places with tourist cab or self car, bt once u reach there, u hav to take either union taxi or pony, In sonemarg- 1000-1500 per pony/person ask them to include jacket nd boots. And go till thajivas glacier. Thy might ask u 3000-5000 In pahalgam - depends on points u cover , starting from 1,2,3,4 points. Well just tell u want to go beisaran or just first 3 point , including boots - 1500. Guide, ski rider, skate/sledge rider , every one will come around u, for doing activity, thy dont let u roam around, eat. Just keep on forcing u to do activity. Which is worst part. Even after a direct NO, thy keep on forcing u. So watever activity u want - do in gulmarg. Well this information was already provided by our organisers. For shopping of dry fruits/kesar - buy from royal kashmir dal lake . Go by shikara. In dal lake market. If any one want info about any location or activity or route can ask me . My Hotel review - ROSE PETAL (srinagar) - 4/5 CHINAR - ( pahalgam ) - 5/5 KOLAHAI GREEN - 5/5
