Pinjore Garden

Pinjore Gardens is  also called Yadavindra Gardens is located in Pinjore – Haryana on Ambala  Shimla road. It is situated at 22 kms from Chandigarh & 15 Kms from Panchkula. 

Pinjore lies on the foothills of the lower Shivalik ranges. The fascinating gardens in the Mughal style are one of the most popular picnic spots in the region. 

It is Built in the 17th century by Aurangzeb’s architect and foster brother Fidai Khan, appointed as the Governor of Punjab. Fidai Khan was possibly inspired by the springs of Pinjore. The Garden was refurbished by the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh of Patiala & later it was renamed Yadavindra Garden in his memory.

The garden has been laid in seven terraces with the main gate of the garden opening into the highest first terrace which has a palace built in Rajasthani–Mughal style. It is called the “Shish Mahal” (palace of glass), which is adjoined by a romantic "Hawa Mahal" (airy Palace). 

The second terrace with arched doorways has the "Rang Mahal" (painted palace). 

The third terrace has cypress trees and flowerbeds leading to dense groves of fruit trees. 

The next terrace has the "Jal Mahal" (palace of water) with a square fountain bed and a platform to relax. Fountains and tree groves are provided in the next terrace. 

The lowermost terrace has an open-air theatre,which is designed as a disc-like structure.

Spending almost for an hour we left for the hotel to get ready for the much awaited function marriage.
