Shalimar Bagh is a Mughal garden with Persian garden layout, with finely groomed tall Aspen trees planted at 2 feet apart from each other, with a backdrop of the vast monsoon Blue Mountains. Furthermore through the third arena are the beautifully picturesque Chinar trees with water fountains in the centre. Shalimar in Sanskrit means abode of love. Mountains merged with the bare blue sky at the horizon almost making the clouds and mountains seem one. Some of the other striking gardens of Kashmir are Chashme Shahi and Nishat Bagh.
Nikhil Rathi
World famous and longest garden of Srinagar.

Aftab Singh
A major part of Sringar and Kashmir in fact, has sprawling lush green gardens with the most beautifully landscaped flower beds and fountains amidst structures which date back to almost the late 16th century. I decided to see a few for myself and visited Shalimar Garden first. Situated 15 Kms from the city centre, it was built by Emperor Jahangir for his beloved wife, Nurjahan. Shalimar gets water from Harwan through a canal lined with fountains. These fountains were the main attraction for the tourists and children alike. Next I moved to Cheshma Shahi, or the Royal Spring was laid by Shah Jahan and Pari Mahal. The spring is famous for refreshing digestive water. After refreshing myself with water from the spring, I went 2kms uphill to reach Pari Mahal. The different views from the 7 terraces Srinagar felt surreal and I stood admiring the natural beauty for many a minutes.
