#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.

  • चश्मेशाही बहुत ही शानदार जगह है। अगर श्रीनगर जाना हो तो यहा जाना न भूले। यहा पर्वत के अंदर से पानी आता है जो कि अमृत के समान शुद्ध है। पेट भरकर पानी पीये। मै सलाह दूँगा की खाली बोतल या उससे भी बडा बर्तन साथ लेकर जाये। The Chasma Shahi is a very wonderful place. If you are going to Srinagar do not forget to go there. Here water comes from inside the mountain, which is as pure as nectar. drink water. I would advise that take a blank bottle or bigger utensil with it.
  • Known mostly for the natural geyser springing up which is held sacred. This garden is a beautiful one with Mughal touch in remnants. It's considered as a worship place for the Muslims. It's a tourist destination of the area and mostly during day time people gather to convey their love to the almighty. Nearby here the Mughal gardens and the tulip gardens are there.
  • Wonderful place to visit. Lush green gardens, variety of flower's Fountains with clear water. Beautiful scenery mountains in background Buildings of Mughal period,carefully restored. Good place to visit with family for picnics.
  • Awesome place with a running chashma of so fresh and clear drinking water. The fun is you can take water home and drink there as much as you can.
  • A nice park to spend some time. But I'm not a nature lover so I give 3 star
