Shal­i­mar Bagh was a large gar­den planned by Shah Ja­han, the Mughal em­peror in the 1600s. A huge palace called Sheesh Ma­hal was also built in the mid­dle of the gar­den. Now, al­though the palace still ex­ists, it is in very bad shape, while the rest of the neigh­bour­hood has grown into a prime res­i­den­tial colony. It was de­vel­oped by DDA in 1978 to ’79.
