  • Exotic location and well maintained. Nice fountains and lush green garden. The roses are lovely. Variety of Flora. Historical garden of Srinagar. A must visit. The ticket charges of Rs. 24/- seems odd as the change is never given to the visitors. Fake gardeners also roam about asking for alms.
  • One of the masterpiece of Mughal Era. Beautiful garden in the Shalimar area of Srinagar. Numerous shops on the road side offering delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Entry only after paying at the ticket counter and collecting the tickets. It's a very large garden with fountains and all. Best time to visit is evening as it may be very hot during summer season
  • It's hard to believe that such a magnificent garden can be conceived in the middle of a city but then again it is Kashmir. Shalimar Bagh is the true illustration of why Kashmir is called heaven on earth. The garden is very beautiful and we'll maintained. There are a lot of flower plants and fountains. If time is an issue then choose Shalimar and rest of the gardens can be skipped safely.
  • These beautiful places are highly crowded by the locals and outsiders. There are some problems which the people face.There is insufficient parking place, the traffic is not manageable . Public conveniences are'not adequately made available for the people,also the lighting system is confined to entrance &exit place. The other side of the situation is that the people are not aware enough to keep this beautiful place clean while their visit. The waist items are thrown randomly ,dust bins are not being used strictly. At least there should have been a public address system to make the people aware of these things.
  • Shalimar Bagh is the biggest of the three Mughal gardens on Dal lake. It's very well laid out and is on a flat terrain. This offers picturesque setting with the hills in the backdrop and Dal lake in front. The garden is very beautiful and well maintained and during the summer season you can see the families enjoying a picnic with their relatives and friends.
