Chashme Shahi Gardens, Srinagar

4.0
#6 of 20 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.

  • It is located above an altitude of and a little away from the Dal Lake. The Park is also dibangunan by the Mughal dynasty. There is a spring (diteras top garden) as well as indoor water fountain in the Center. At a glance it resembles the gardens in iran. Perhaps due to the influence of the Persian style. The Park is not too broad perhaps even the smallest of the entire Mughal gardens in Srinagar. The best time to visit here is may to June when the flowers are blooming peak.

  • Chashme Shahi is located in Srinagar, 14 km from the Srinagar Airport. It is adjacent to Rajbhawan (Governor's house). The garden is connected by the Boulevard Road which passes along the banks of the Dal lake. There are many hotels and restaurants available for boarding and lodging near the garden. The garden remains open for tourists from March to November. The best time to visit the garden is from April to October. The garden is at full bloom during May and June.
  • It is a really huge area of beautiful gardens originally belonging to the Mughals. The gardens contain a spring in the centre. The place provides great views of the snow capped mountains and is a good place for the peace and relaxation of mind.
  • Beautifuly laid out garden ,on the mountains ,with a. Stream as the central focus of attention , a very beautiful confluence if nature and man made beauty
  • Great Place .... awesome water taste and beautiful garden. Mark helpful if you got helped.
  • One of the many gardens constructed by Mughals around Srinagar city. This chashm (spring) is famous for its mineral laced water which according to legends was served to kings and courtiers in far off lands. But, unfortunately, before one reaches the chashm, which is located at the end of the stepped garden, one comes across a eye sore of an Indian forces bunker. They have ruined the attractiveness of the place. Also, a restaurant run by local tourism department, which is made of cheap-glass, fails to sync with the overall beauty.
