About Shalimar Bagh

Dating back to the Mughal empire in 1651, these impressive gardens were an offering from Emperor Jahangir to his wife Nur Jahan. The gardens are made up of a number of terraces, canals, ponds and pavilions, all beautifully laid out in a neo-classical style. On the black pavilion overlooking the 2rd terrace is an inscription by the Persian poet Jamil “If there is a paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this.” If that isn’t a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is.
