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!

Built by Jahangir, this Mughal Garden is a must visit. We were there as a family twice and enjoyed the beautiful garden to the hilt. The well maintained flower beds and the beautiful view from the upper terraces kept us enthralled. The view of Dal Lake is wonderful. It is crowded at the entrance and parking is an issue on... More

This is one of the five major gardens, we could not visit tulip gaden as this was closed. However, other gardens were really wonderfull. Walking through the chinar trees and resting on lush green garden defintely makes time enjoyable. The construction is also amazing and makes us proud of our glorious past.

Definitely worth a visit. Don't let the long line at entrance discourage you. It is still worth a visit, and crowds thin out once you reach the upper terraces.

A very huge and beautiful place to relax and spend some time. Very nicely maintained. During this period of year, not many flowers in the area, but could be a good bet in right season.
