Nishat Bagh Overview

Ranked 7 of 53 sightseeing in Srinagar

Nishat Bagh was constructed in 1633 by Abdul Hasan Asaf Khan, brother of Nur Jahan and father of Mumtaz Mahal. It is among the largest Mughal Gardens built in the region, which has some of the rare species of flowers and artefacts. The bagh is located on the banks of Dal Lake with Zabarwan Hills on the backdrop.

It is also known for around 12 terraces, fountains, flowerbeds and huge lawns that attract travellers. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan was impressed with the beauty of this garden and hoped that his father-in-law would gift this place to him. When he did not receive this place in gift, he ordered for the closure of the water supply to this garden.

Much crowded on special days and weekends

Park is good. Variety of flowers, stream flowing in between. Looks like Shalimar Bagh designwise. Street foods in front of park. Nice lake view too. 20 INR per head entry fee.

Nice Garden

It is the largest amongst the three Mughal gardens in Srinagar an interesting system of cascading fountains. It is perfectly manicured, and are a good place to stroll and relax. The combination of water and vegetation is interest. A magical atmosphere with the view of the Dal Lake and especially the colours, the smiles, the simplicity and the innate elegance of many tourists from all over the country, many with their traditional dress, married couples with families, making them attending, enjoying this beautiful place.
