Pinjore Gardens - Review
Pinjore Garden is also known as Pinore or Yadavindra Gardens. It is located in the Panchkula District of Haryana and is a Mughal Style Garden built by the ancient Patiala Dynasty. The name Yadavindra Garden is given as a symbol of honour to Maharaja Yadavindra Singh of the Patiala Dynasty, the former royals of Chandigarh.
The garden has been laid down comprising of seven broad terraces. The main gateway opens on the highest terrace and there you can see a Rajasthan Style Haweli called the ‘Shish Mahal’ or the ‘palace of glass’ and beside it is the ‘Hawa Mahal’ or the airy palace. The second terrace has beautiful arches and leads to the Rang Mahal or the Painted Palace. The third step or terrace has dense growth of cypress and fruit groves and also beautiful flower beds. The next terrace has the Jal mahal and a square fountain as the name suggests. This is also a lovely spot where you can relax.

Pinjore Gardens, Chandigarh Reviews
Beautiful, pleasant place it is.... But i have seen many people ruining its beauty. Writing thier names on walls and trees and writing even other rubbish things on beautiful structures. This should be banned you know. And also those animals should be brought back
We visited on a weekend day in the afternoon. It was a clear sunny day and we were impressed even before entering the gardens. There were camel rides and a small toy train . There were plenty of snack bars outside and I side and there was a large car park as well. The tickets to the entrance were inexpensive Round 20 inr per person . The gardens have been expanded over the years so make sure you are wearing flat comfortable shoes. Take a shawl or cardigan as gets cold in evenings. There is a large array of different flowers and trees roses marigolds and fir bamboo trees and different plants. There are not enough benches to sit on so not for the elderly and this needs too be improved on however there were plenty of ramps if travelling with wheelchair users.
It was a beautiful evening. It was drizzling and soon it started to rain heavily. We rushed to take a shelter and spent some time taking photographs in the garden gallery. The architecture is amazing. The long wide steps that lead to the garden below are stunning. Recommended for a family or couple visit.
Can be visited once in a while. In holidays parking is difficult due to rush. However well maintained. Picnic spot to enjoy with family
A very unique and picturesque destination to visit in Pinjore India. Located a short drive from Chandigarh this garden must be visited both during the day and night time. The evening light set up transforms this beautiful peaceful and tranquil garden. Great for an nice evening out with family and friends. Enjoy the breathtaking views and quiet during the evenings.
