Shalamar Garden

Shalamar Garden was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in Lahore in 1642. To irrigate the Garden, a canal named “Shah Nahar” meaning Royal canal, was brought from a distance of over 160 kilometers. The canal intersected the Gardens and discharged into a large marble basin in the middle terrace. From this basin, and from the canal, rise 410 fountains, which discharge into wide marble pools. It is a credit to the creativity of the Mughal engineers that even today scientists are unable to comprehend how the fountains were operated.
In 1981, Shalimar Gardens was included as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the Lahore Fort.
