  • Beautiful garden in Kashmir valley. A very nice place to spend time with family and friends. Best visiting time is from May to October.
  • A nice place. The largest and most beautiful garden. One must visit this place. The whole garden has been made on a terrace type structure with steps you go little higher each time. There is a magnificient view of the DAL LAKE in the distance from the top of the garden. The flowers are nice and beautifully maintaned.
  • Amazing place.. Visited in summer as well as autumn... Lovely view of Dal Lake from the garden..
  • One of the Mughal Gardens, Nishat is a popular tourist attraction in Srinagar city... The garden has seven terraces and provides you an awesome view of the Dal lake.
  • A very good place to visit with family or friends. A view of Dal on one side and hillock on other side wid fresh waters flowing through middle. A little mismanagement seems when the pollution there comes to questions. Hope we can resolve it soon. 😊

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
