about shalimar bagh

Commissioned by Jahangir for Noor Jehan in 1619, Shalimar Bagh is a four-terraced fiesta of chinars and watercourses with an exquisite hill as its immediate backdrop. A very prominent feature of the garden is the arched recesses behind the fountains. These recesses used to be lit with lamps, giving the fountains a majestic, dreamy look.

The garden is located at a distance of 15 km from the Tourist Reception Centre and covers an area of around 12.40 hectares (30.6 acres). An October visit among the flaming autumnal chinars is perhaps even more desirable than the floral riot in spring. All year round though, the most lovely thing in Shalimar is a baradari, a summer house, which is today a fading gracious structure, with black marble pillars (from Pampore) and gorgeous painted ceilings.
