Located just ahead of the ancient Buddhist monastery of Taxila, and 2 kilometers east of the town of Hasan Abdal, famous for the Sikh religious sites, are the 17th century Wah Gardens. The gardens have two terraces, the upper and the lower one. These gardens were initially used as a transit camp by Mughal emperors - but owing to the natural beauty, the area was developed and cultivated by the successive emperors into gardens. The garden now contains all the features of a traditional Mughal garden.
It is famous for its beautiful ponds, reflecting pools, water channels, cascades and fountains built during the reign of Shah Jahan. A large water tank to the eastern end supplies its three water channels that run parallel to the length of the garden. Fifteen fountains flow from the central water channel.
