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. 

To navigate the project, please use the Main menu panel to the left. Please explore the Paths that I laid out at the bottom of some pages and the Annotations within the pictures themselves by clicking on the 'Details' in the bottom right corner of the picture.

To get started click the first section "Kashmir, the rest is worthless".
