The impressive Shalimar Gardens in 5KM (3 miles) from the centre of town on the Grand Trunk Road towards the Indian border. This is the only garden left in whole subcontinent which shows what a Mughal was like. You can get there in about 20 minutes from railway station on wagon number 12. The best time to visit garden is when the fontains are playing 10 to11am and 4to 5pm in summer, and 11 to 12 noon and 3 to 4 pm in winter.
The garden was built by Shahjahan in 1642 as a pleasure garden for royal household; it follows the Mughal concept of the perfect walled garden, with three tarraces of straight, shaded walks, geometrically arranged ponds, fountains and marble pavillions, surronded by flowers and fruit trees. The garden is especially lovely in Feburary and March when the flowers are atr their best; in summer it can be dry and dusty, though it is still a pleasent place to relax after a sightseeing expedition.

Address: Grand Trunk Road (G.T. Road) Baghban Pura, Lahore.
Directions: Close to University of Engineering & Techonology (U.E.T), Lahore.
