Shalimar gardens

Shalimar gardens in Lahore, Pakistan
Visited in December 2013

17th century Mughal gardens by the emperor Shah Jahan.
Gardens with full of romantic stories and charms, as if I read a story from Arabian nights.
Abandoned brick reservoir gives an idea of the scale of irrigation system of the gardens.
