Chashme Shahi Gardens, Srinagar

3.9
#6 of 18 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.

  • This garden is not famous for its flowers, but the natural water! It has a natural stream which contains pure and cool natural drinking water. The water tastes very sweet and refreshing. Don't forget to bring bottle with you for taking some water to home while visiting this place!
  • Very well maintained... Peaceful place to spend the day... But if on a trip need to visit the other gardens so wouldn't get much time here... Highlight is a fountain which is said to have pristine drinking water..
  • One of the oldest natural spring in area having a tasty water. Surrounded by beautiful garden.

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.
