Photographer's Note

Shalimar bagh is a Mughal garden in Srinagar, linked through a channel to the northeast of the Dal lake. It also known as Farah baksh, and Faiz baksh. The bagh was built by the Mughal emperor Jahangir for his wife Nur Jahan, in 1619. It is considered the high point of Mughal horticulture. It is now a public park. During the Mughal period, in particular, emperor Jahangir and his wife Nur Jahan were so enamoured of Kashmir that during summer they moved to Srinagar with their full-court entourage from Delhi at least 13 times. Shalimar bagh was their imperial summer residence and the Royal court. They crossed the arduous snowy passes of the Pir Panjal mountain range on elephants to reach Srinagar. Source : wiki
