As good tourists we went for a stroll around the beautiful Shalimar Gardens.

Shalimar darlings

Shame the fountains weren´t on, they only work on Special holidays, probably due to drought. The gardens are another masterpiece from the time of the brilliant Mughal civilization, which reached its height during the reign of the Emperor Shah Jahan. The elegance of these splendid gardens, built near the Old City of Lahore on three terraces with lodges, waterfalls and large ornamental ponds, is unequalled. However, there are 2 other sites with the same name, the form of this garden is inspired by the gardens of the same name, in Kashmir, and was later copied in the Shalimar Gardens of Delhi.
