Shalimar Bagh Mughal Garden, Srinagar

4.2
#7 of 22 in Parks in Srinagar
Take a stroll through Shalimar Bagh Mughal Garden, a well-maintained historical plot of land. Along with the other Mughal gardens in the country, these feature a design based on the model of Persian gardens, albeit modified to accommodate the hilly terrain and location of the water source. More linear than other gardens built by Mughals in the 17th century, the tiered garden has a striking visual effect, with its central stream running down in a cascade, and cypress and chinar trees lining the avenues against a mountainous backdrop.

The place is very green and is well maintained by the gardeners who keep working there everyday. The fountains and Gardens make this place picturesque. Fun Fact you can find Shalimar garden picture on a Rs10 currency of India. Do visit here to get some of the best pictures with scenic backgrounds. You can easily spend 2 hours here, post this place you can visit Dal Lake which is a 10mins ride from Shalimar Bagh.
  • I think the gardens were the highlight of my trip to Srinagar. The Famous maple trees were enormous and our guide told us that some of them were over 500 years old. Absolutely exquisite. And whilst there was some litter in the ponds one can see that the gardens are cleaned and maintained regularly. Strongly suggest that one visits during the week as weekends are busy.
