#6 of 19 in Parks in Srinagar
Take a stroll through a historical and artfully arranged garden at Chashme Shahi Gardens. Established in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a present for his son, Prince Dara Shikoh, the garden represents the smallest of the city's three Mughal gardens. Its architecture and design take influence from Persian gardens, and center around a freshwater spring. Water from the spring flows down the garden's terraces, creating several notable water features, including a waterfall and fountains. A visit to Chashme Shahi Gardens represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Srinagar trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • We went there in the evening and it was full of tourists. But the garden was big enough for all of them. The various kinds & colours of flowers all around will compel you to admire the place. And to add to that, a stream of spring water flows through the middle of the garden. Really loved it!
  • Great combination of hills ,garden and beauty. The water here is great. The beauty will soothe your soul and eyes. One of the best Mughal gardens. Entry fee is 24 rupees. Great maintenance.
  • ﮔﺮ ﻓﺮﺩﻭﺱ ﺑﺮ ﺭﻭﺋﮯ ﺯﻣﯿﻦ ﺍﺳﺖ ﮨﻤﯿﮟ ﺍﺳﺖ ﮨﻤﯿﮟ ﺍﺳﺖ ﻭ ﮨﻤﯿﮟ ﺍﺳﺖ That is, "If there is paradise on earth somewhere, it's here, it's here, it's here. The highlight of Chashme Shahi Garden is its natural spring of freshwater, which has mineral content. There are three terraced formations in the garden, which are carpeted with lush greenery and dotted with colourful flowers. Several fountains and waterfalls adorn the verdant landscape of this garden. It is lined with numerous trees of Chinar and different fruits, which add to its picturesque charm.
  • Park I would recommend​ families .. perfect spot for lunch ...if you bring it with you.. Other parks may be better to roam but this is the ☮️ one .... remember lunch here
  • One of the most beautiful gardens in Srinagar. It has water spring where one can drink one of the purest spring waters, the flowers are nice in the gardens and there is ample space to sit down and relax.
