I remember visiting this garden as a child it was so beautiful then it seems to have lost its charm with nearly dead flowers and tourist and residents dirtying the water by playing and bathing around . Though it's reasonably maintained it not worth visiting again for sure

Very pretty garden. However, the nearby constructions from the periphery have taken away some of the charm, not to mention the constant loudspeakers blaring - spoil the peace and quiet

Normally this garden is avoided by tourist coaches but it is the must visit in srinagar. Might be the best garden in srinagar. Beautifully landscaped & best fountains in srinagar are located in this garden. Chinar Trees which are almost 400 years old are there in this garden. Must Visit.

Shalimar Bagh is biggest amongst all the Mughal Gardens in Kashmir. But Lawns are not as well maintained as the Nishat Bagh and it definitely does not have as many flowers as Chashm-e-shahi. The Garden is lined with beautiful Chinar Trees which add to its beauty. The place can be visited once.

Shalimar is best among mughal gardens.. Long Big Chinar Trees are more than 300 yrs old And the flowing water has been planned nicely.. with sitting areas in between. it comes from a natural source at a height & flows across the full length of garden with fountains..

Not enough flowers could be seen as compared to Nishaad Baug. So if you have visited nishaad baug , can easily skip shalimaar. Maintaince and upkeep not upto mark. Seems like a mini version of Nishaad Baug.

Shalimar Garden, largest Mughal Garden in Kashmir Valley. (! Does not seemed to me). It was built by Jahangir for his wife Nur Jahan. But no doubt it’s architecture is beautiful. Unfortunately due to maintenance works in progress we did not seen the best of it.

The fountains are splendid. The grandest Mughal garden certainly. But trash is everywhere. There needs to be more trash cans because people have unfortunately ruined the place.
