The history of garden creation doesn’t go back the Mughals in valley; instead its history goes back to earlier period. The garden tradition improved by sultans of Kashmir and also the Mughals took it to new heights. During Muslim period in valley, the kings were very fond of laying gardens and to construct structures, Howere a similar structures are currently a region of history. Mughal rulers in Kashmir valley laid beautiful gardens throughout length and breadth with vast experience and exposure of Persian garden system. Kashmir opened up a new world and released a flood of creativity to the Mughals whom the making of gardens was a ruling passion.
