and is just over the border into the state of Haryana. On your
shimla India tour take a halt at Kalka.Theres nothing
to see in Kalka, so dont bother spending time here unless
you really want to stretch your legs a bit.
¤ Main Attractioins
About 5km southwest on the Chandigarh road are the beautiful
Mughal gardens at Pinjore.
The gardens were laid out by Aurangzebs foster brother
Fidai Khan, who was also the architect of the Badshahi Mosque
at Lahore. Within the char bagh (complex of four gardens, typical
of Mughal style) are a number of palaces in Mughal-Rajput style.
The Sheesh Mahal has a beautiful mirror-studded ceiling and
is cooled by water flowing underneath. The Rang Mahal, an arched
pavilion, is decorated with traditional guldasta (bouquet) motifs
while the Jal Mahal is set among cool fountains. The garden
makes a popular picnic spot with a mini zoo thrown in for good
measure too. Dont miss the camel ride there.
