The highest terrace at this site is known as 'Abode of Love', Though Shalimar Bagh is the most famous garden in Srinagar, but we found Nishat Bagh... More

Though it has best architecture of mughal period which they would have created for sitting here in leisure among the green garden full of flowers and the spring stream flowing in between but it is not very well kept. If you wanna visit this one then I advice you to visit it before you go to Nishat Bagh and Chashm... More

The garden is situated at a very nice location. The view is very good. The place is too quiet, for anyone to spend some quality time. I went there with my family, very happy about the place. Plus, there are so many street food hawkers to eat outside the garden which offers good tasty food, nice ice cream, with some... More

this garden is located next to Dal lake. It is very beautifully designed. There were lots of Sycamore trees. We did not see many flowers as we visited the gardens in winter. I am sure the gardens would totally tranform in other seasons.

"Those pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar" ... the very word is magical and the gardens themselves are symmetrically laid-out and beautiful with colourful flowers, chinar trees, fountains and pavilions. Gorgeous !

Each of the gardens of Srinagar is an apt edifice of the splendour and grandeur of the Mughal era and Shalimar Bagh is no exception. Intricately landscaped and designed the gardens tell you of the inspiration behind Firdaus's rapturous verse on Kashmir. A must see in spring, summer or fall,
