400 year trees

Chinar trees that are more than 400 years, beautiful flowers and fountains are an attraction. Nice view of the mountains from the garden make it a picturesque location

We found Nishat better than Shalimar in terms of flora .. there are big chinar trees in Shalimar which blocks the view.. The only good point about shaimar is that it has more fountains and more water in the stream.. but if one has visited Nishat, this can be avoided if one is running short of time…

Shalimar Bagh is a Mughal style garden in Srinagar located near Dal Lake. A nice landscaped garden. The marble pavilion picture was put in the earlier days ten rupee note too. A vast garden to sit, relax and enjoy your evening peacefully.

The Shalimar Bagh is well known for waterfalls. They are a unique feature in the Bagh. These gardens are lighted at night with oil. The Baradari has four exquisite doors made of stones supported by pillars. It is said that these stone doors were ruins from old temples that were demolished by Shahajahan. The Shalimar Bagh garden is very beautiful... More

The sense of space is what hits you at first. Levels and levels of landscaped area. The feeling of greenery and water all around you can be overwhelming, especially for a Mumbaikar like me.

Garden is very good and well maintained. But in summer, avoid visiting during afternoon. Entry fee is very nominal.

"Shalimar gardens" is a paradise in itself. All credit to the authorities responsible for maintaining it so nicely!!. A place where you will surely lose yourself to Nature's beauty. With dal lake at the bottom, the sargen spreads itself all the way up - close to Zabarwan hills at he top. Paradise for flower lovers. It is beautifully laid out... More

Many Bollywood movies in the 60s and 70s had songs which were shot here. The sheer beauty of this garden is the clear reason for this. The expansive garden is worth a full walk. A good place to picnic too.
