  • Beaty with Natural spring, one must visit this place in Srinagar. Though Natual spring is covered with structure but still feel great to drink the natural water. Pure & Safe like nature. To visit the garden you have to pay the entry fee, 20/Rs per Adult and 10/Rs per Children. Below 4 year age has free entry.
  • Calm, serene, beautiful. Natural spring water flowing down channels. Surrounded by beautiful flowing trees. Lovely experience
  • Very beautiful garden with natural spring having pure sweet water. Chashme Shahi originally derives its name from the spring which was discovered by the great female saint of Kashmir, Rupa Bhawani, who was from the Sahib clan of Kashmiri Pandits. The family name of Rupa Bhawani was 'Sahib' and the spring was originally called 'Chashme Sahibi'. Over the years the name got corrupted and today the place is known as Chashme Shahi (the Royal Spring). Gardens around the spring were built on orders of Shah jahan. Must visit place in Sri Nagar.
  • It is very beautiful and charming Garden the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan gifted this Garden to his elder son Dara shikoh which killed later by his elder brother. The Garden was constructed around the fresh water spring. It is the smallest Garden among the three Mughal Gardens of Srinagar. The attractive part of the Garden is Spring which divided into 3 Parts, an aqueduct, waterfall and fountains.
  • The place is full of blossems and dal lake at center looks fabulous
