Kashmir has lots of these well-maintained gardens. Shalimar bagh is a very pretty one and they have maintained it very well. There are some areas which could be maintained better. But this is a must visit for honeymooners and nature enthusiasts.

Lovely gardens with lots of fountains - many kids were swimming in the ponds. Needs more rubbish bins as there was a lot of litter around and not many places to put it.

The place is a large garden with different types of flowers & fountains, like any other Mughal gardens in the city. You wont likely see anything new, particularly if you have visited botanical gardens/cubbon park or lal bagh of Bangalore. But given the weather of Kashmir, age old long maple trees and their shade, makes it a good place to... More

Though most of the other gardens are more popular, more accessible and have a better view, I am attracted to the immense chinars in the Shalimar garden and the beautiful magnolia trees there, the flowing water and the majestic ambience!
