Top 3 Mughal Gardens of Srinagar - For Your Summer Vacations

If you ever get drawn by Srinagar tourism and choose to head to that direction (which you should as early as possible), then you must not miss out on the city’s famous Mughal Gardens. Srinagar’s popularity stems from its lakes and gardens. And its royal gardens definitely juxtapose history with natural beauty.

Here is a look at the top 3 Mughal Gardens of Srinagar:

1. Shalimar Bagh: If Shah Jahan gave the world the Taj Mahal, then Jahangir gifted it the Shalimar Bagh. Built during his era in the early 17th century, this garden is not just a remnant of history but is also very well designed and maintained. With green foliage, fountains and lawns in its kitty, Shalimar is certainly one of the best places to visit in Srinagar. It is nestled beside the Dal Lake, another hypnotic attraction. 

2. Nishat Bagh: Nishat Bagh is the neighbor and close rival of Shalimar and is as beautiful and historic than it. Its USP is its serpentine and endearing queue of Cypress trees which have a heart-winning effect on the soul. The garden was built by Nur Jahan’s wife Asif Khan, and is another masterpiece from the Mughal era.

3. Chashmashahi: Chashmashahi is also counted amongst the most popular placesto visit in Srinagar. It is noted for its royal spring and some fabulous terraces and lawns. It stays open for tourists everyday and can be visited round the year. When you visit this place, also drop by the nearby attractions of Tulip Garden and Pari Mahal.
