The Mughal Gardens of Pinjore (near Chandigarh, India) are one of the most beautiful and oldest gardens in north India. Often compared with Brindavan Gardens of Mysore, the gardens are laid out on seven terraces which descend gradually. The main gate opens to the highest terrace. The entire garden is encircled by an embattled wall.
The Gardens in their present form were designed by Fidai Khan in the 17th century. Fidai Khan was Aurangzeb’s trusted lieutenant and an architect. He had also built the Badshahi Mosque at Lahore. As a governor of Punjab, he visited this place and got fascinated. He then planned this garden.
An oasis in city!
Must visit for tourists going to Chandigarh
Seems like a runway at the airport
Garden looks splendid at night in lights
Different altogether from a day visit.
Each terrace is designed distinctly
Many fountains in the garden are a spectacle
The history of Pinjore is said to be dating back to the days of Mahabharata.
Its double the joy when moon is shining
Each terrace has its own beauty
Fountains make an amazin.g effect
Gardens are big and beautiful!
Built with mughal architecture style
Lights, water and different hues of colour make a dazzling effect.
