The layout of both Shalimar and Nishat Bagh are similar to that of the Persian gardens with a water source in the centre and four streams radiating from it.
Chashm-e-Shahi Bagh is known for its fresh water springs, which are popular for their medicinal value. There is also a mountain spring near a shrine called Chasma Sahibi after which the garden is named. In autumn, the Mughal Gardens are covered with fallen red golden leaves – a walk with your beloved is a memory that will last forever.
