Chashme Shahi Gardens, Srinagar

4.0
#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.

  • 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.
  • A very nice garden albeit being the smallest among the Mughal Gardens in Srinagar. Security along the way leading to the garden is very tight and you have to get off your vehicle and have the whole vehicle inspected. Tickets cost 20 rupees per person. Nothing much to see in winter apart from the spring and the pavillion. The spring water is drinkable and was very refreshing.
  • Flowers and greenery was absent bcoz of cold temperature better one should visit after March if want to enjoy flowers and greenery
  • It was built by governor of Shah Jahan and is located near Rajbhavan. It has an Iranian influence in art and architecture with design based on Persian Gardens.Built around the freshwater spring, which flows through its centre. That water, it was so pure, so gelid, glacial , that just gave me Goosebumps when I initially stepped there.But the water was a boon!!

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.
