Heaven on Earth
This project will unravel by starting with a study of the region of Kashmir and why it was chosen for Shalimar Bagh among other gardens. Then we will move on to how the Mughals planned the garden in a way that highlighted the natural beauty of Kashmir. Then we will take a closer look at the structure of the Shalimar Bagh and its architecture.
The project will culminate in tying everything we learn together in an exercise of imagination, to recreate Shalimar Bagh in our minds, to approximate what it would have been like to be there.
