Harwan Gardens is a large picnic spot, which houses a canal, flowerbeds and chinar trees. There are big grassy lawns at this garden, where tourists can enjoy nature walk. This garden is considered to be the starting point of Mahadev Mountain trek and is an ideal gateway to Dachigam Wildlife Sanctuary. It is situated at about 15 km from the main city of Srinagar and is different from other gardens in Srinagar.
This garden does not have any central canal fountains or terraces and is known for its natural beauty. The canal inside this garden is called as Sarband, which is one of the old drinking water reservoirs that get water from the Dachigam Nallah.
