The Shalimar bagh is an intricate arrangement of stone structures, water falls and fountains. You can step on the stones and walk right into the fountains. Its a wonderful experience. Children will enjoy the time. The gardens are maintained well with many varieties of flowers adoring the surroundings - key attraction are the yellow flowers which add so much brightness.... More

Beautifully landscaped garden, with a stream flowing in the middle. Huge lawns, built in steps and was planted by the mughal emprors centuries back. A must visit.

Worth a visit once on your visit to Srinagar. As there would be mostly gardens in the valley, there are not others options than these gardens. Entry fees is same for all gardens at Rs.10. The garden has a variety of flowers but not much compared to Shalimar Garden, Nishat Garden or Chashm-e-Shahi Gardens. Has one of the oldest Chinar... More

Shalimar baug is in list of must visit site seeing when you are at Srinagar & is spacious place to spend time but we found it over rated, maybe because it was very cold evening & there were very few tourist inside. It might have legacy to offer but need better upkeep. Unless you have spare time or young children... More

It is less crowded, neat, well maintained. one can relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Do not get tempted by local gardeners for seeds and plants. Those flowers and plants are for that climate
