Shalimar Garden

Shalimar Garden is a beautiful small garden situated at Kapurthala, about 21 km from Jalandhar, in Punjab. A magnificent gate welcomes one in to the curtilage where a charming pond and a park provide ideal vistas to sit and relax. A well stocked library caters to the studious lot.

The historical building, Baradari, in the Shalimar Garden is the site where Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Maharaja Fateh Singh had met. The Samadhis of former rulers of Kapurthala, with excellent filigree work, are also housed in the garden.

Shalimar Garden hosts the annual Basant Panchi Mela.

Kapurthala Railway Station, on the Jalandhar-Ferozepur rail route, is the nearest railhead.
