Amazing place to visit

This garden is in the middle of Dal Lake. There are Kashmiri dresses to take photographs. There is tea and coffee available. It is very good place. It is one point of Shikara ride. In morning this place is very amazing.

Beautiful Garden, merged in nature

Garden has beautiful lake and rare species of vegetation. It offers spectacular view in the backdrop of mountains. I would rather spend a full day here. Soaking in the beauty. Really would have loved to spend more time than I could. Great for kids, its really awesome.
