First of all, I went to see the temples and natural springs. Then I visited the Pinjor Garden. This garden is also known as Yadvindra Garden. Fidai Khan, a Mughal Nawab, planned and developed it. The entry to the garden is through a grand gate by ticket. I bought the ticket and I walked in.

The garden is divided into seven terraces. There are attractive buildings like Sheesh Mahal, Rang Mahal and Jal Mahal in it. A natural stream flows through the garden. Many fountains and orchards add to the beauty of the garden. There are many trees like mango , lichi, almond, guava, peach, plum, etc. My mouth watered at the sight of the ripe mangoes.

After a complete round of the garden, I had my lunch and took rest for some time. I was fresh again and enjoyed playing for about two hours. I was delighted and had a great fun. It was evening by then. The light was switched ON.

The fountains looked more charming in the coloured lights. Then I left for home. The visit was indeed, a very happy and wonderful experience.
