  • ये श्री नगर का बेहद ही खूबसूरत बाग है और ये डल झील के बिल्कुल सामने स्थित है । निशात बाग़ को मुगल गार्डन भी कहते है ये श्रीनगर सबसे बड़ा बाग़ शालीमार बाग़ के बाद दूसरा बड़ा बाग है । इस बाग़ को 1633 में मुमताज महल के पिता हसन आसफ खान और नूर जहान के भाई द्वारा बनवाया था । उर्दू का शब्द "निशात" का अर्थ है खुशिया सो इसे हम इसे "खुशियों का बाग" भी कह सकते है । इस बाग़ में बेहद दुर्लभ किस्म के फूलो के पौधे, चिनार, सुरु और फलो के पेड़ पाए जाते है । डल झील के किनारे श्रीनगर के जबारवान पर्वत के आँचल में ये बाग़ सीढ़ीदार शैली में निर्मित है । कुल मिलाकर 12 सीढ़ीदार तल पर इस बाग़ का निर्माण किया गया है ।
  • One of the most beautiful park built by mughals. Situated on the bank of Dal lake, which increase it's natural beauty and charm.

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.
