Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Shalimar Bagh is a residential colony in North West Delhi, India. Shalimar Bagh was built by Mughal Emperor, Shahjahan in 1653, who had previously constructed a similar garden known as Shalimar Gardens at Lahore in 1641 AD. The garden, once known as "Aizzabad-Bagh," was the site of the coronation of Aurangzeb on July 31, 1658. Originally, the garden contained a palace called Sheesh Mahal. Shahjahan used this palace as a halting place on his royal trips to Kashmir, Punjab or Lahore. The garden was typically laid in a Mughal style and had a very good water supply and drainage system.
