Mughal Gardens, Srinagar

3.9
#7 of 18 in Parks in Srinagar
Take a stroll through Mughal Gardens, a well-maintained historical plot of land. Along with the other Mughal gardens in the country, these feature a design based on the model of Persian gardens, albeit modified to accommodate the hilly terrain and location of the water source. More linear than other gardens built by Mughals in the 17th century, the tiered garden has a striking visual effect, with its central stream running down in a cascade, and cypress and chinar trees lining the avenues against a mountainous backdrop.

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.
