Sight Seen : Kashmir Magic - Shalimar Bagh

Srinagar - Shalimar Bagh

The garden is located at a distance of 15 km from the Tourist Reception Centre and covers an area of around 12.40 hectares (30.6 acres). An October visit among the flaming autumnal chinars is perhaps even more desirable than the floral riot in spring. All year round though, the most lovely thing in Shalimar is a baradari, a summer house, which is today a fading gracious structure, with black marble pillars (from Pampore) and gorgeous painted ceilings.
