When we went, the flowers had not blossomed and the staff was preparing for the peak season. Still we could figure out what it would look like during summer months. They garden is big, full of flower bearing plants and lots of space for kids to run around. Keep minimum of 3 hours for the garden. Its just pure beautiful.... More

Nicely maintained Garden, Very Good Greenery & location. Must Visit place in Summers. This is slightly farther from downtown Srinagar than Nishat Garden but nishant garden is more picturesque than shalimar.

Everything of this garden is just breathtaking. Even the tourists are orderly perhaps dominated by the awe of the place. While the garden is reasonably maintained it can be improved.

This is one of the three Mughal Gardens in Srinagar. This too has a tiered architecture. This is best visited when there are flowers in bloom. Lookout for the gardeners selling flower seeds at reasonable prices.

I feel it as the most beautiful garden at Srinagar. It has a wonderful Mughal Structure with fountains. Garden is well maintained just like other gardens at Srinagar but the landscape is better than others.

The valley was fully covered with snow but it was sunny day. It was very exciting to visit with my teacher and all the gardens-Shalimar, Nishat and Cheshma Shahi were looking very attractive covered with snow and many... More

One of the three gardens dedicated to the Mughal queens by the kings. I dont have any fascination for gardens and trees but okay .... one of the many places of interest in Srinagar.
