Photographer's Note

I talked with these Kashmiri boys and asked them to pose. They were taking pictures also in the garden. Shalimar bagh covers an area of 12.4 hectares built with a size of 587 metres length on the main axis channel and with a total width of 251 metres. The garden has three terraces fitted with fountains and with chinar (sycamore) tree-lined vistas. The Shahnahar is the main feeder channel to all the terraces. Each one of the three terraces has a specific role.
The gardens were the inspiration for other gardens of the same name, notably the Shalimar bagh in Delhi built in 1653 and Shalimar gardens in Lahore built by Emperor Shah Jahan in 1641. Source : wiki
