About Shalimar Bagh

Shalimar Bagh is a Mughal garden in Srinagar, linked through a channel to the northeast of Dal Lake, on its right bank located on the outskirts of Srinagar city in Jammu and Kashmir, India. The architecture and landscaping of this garden draws inspiration from the Persian Chahar Bagh. It is segregated into three terraced portions, each serving a different purpose. The outer portion of the garden is named Diwan-i-Aam that was open to public, whereas the central portion named Diwan-i-Khas was exclusively for the emperor. Its uppermost portion was designed for women belonging to the royal family. The garden is encompassed by tall trees of chinar and is dotted with colorful flowers. A beautiful canal with polished pebbles runs through the center of this garden and adds to its beauty.
