we visited December 2015 when it was cold and dreary, but it was beautiful, relaxing and one can just imagine the beauty in spring and summer. Besides its history, the views are unexplainable, wow God is great, Kashmir is heaven on earth..... Pray to visit one day in the summer season.

I noticed good architecture / fountains and places to sit, but in winters the gardens looks completely bare - without flowers and leaves. There are chinar trees which... More

A short walk along a canal takes you to the entrance gate of this Mughal retreat (this point can be reached by taxi as well).The garden is quite big and Hosts very old Chinar trees and a big variety...
