Nishat Garden - Review

Nishat or Joy resides in the very name of this place. The joyful gardens which lie to the east of the Dal Lake are an absolute delight to visit. One of the few glorious Mughal Gardens worth visiting in Srinagar, this terraced garden is the second largest one you will see.

Intricately decorated and landscaped, these gardens have 12 terraces or sections that stand for the 12 signs of the zodiac.Although they have been refurbished in the recent years to make sure that all the plants receive enough water, they are still quite lovely.

The lovely flowers and the lush plants make this place extremely refreshing to visit and quite perfect for a nice family outing.

Nishat Garden, Srinagar Reviews

  • I visited this place in November 2015 and there were not hoards of people around with screaming kids to spoil it. The gardens are beautiful and well laid out. As you walk along the paths you follow the ponds (at least I think they are ponds, but in fact it may be a river that tops it up. I'm not sure. Anyway, there are fountains in these ponds and the walkway leads up to a small Gazebo type place which has all the style and colour's you find around a lot of India- but on a smaller scale. The only shame is that some idiots thought the world needed to know them, so there are a couple of names and initials carved or written on the walls. There is a grass area with trees and it would have probably looked fantastic in the summer. Still, one day I'll maybe return and see it in all of it's glory. I have put a few photo's here as my descriptions are pretty rubbish compared to seeing the place in real life. Go there, enjoy it and look around a couple of other Gardens. The view as you leave the place (or as you get there really) is of Dal Lake. It was not summertime so the view was a bit blurry due to clouds and mist. I think my timing was wrong as four days later the airport was closed for a few days due to fog. I did try putting some photo's with the review but it does not seem to like me very much; so I am sorry about that. I just will not bother trying again as it wasted to much time trying to figure it out.

  • A well maintained, serene place to visit. Built in the 1600s by the son in law of Emperor Shah Jehan on 12 terraces with gorgeous plants and trees around and man made stream and fountains running through the middle. perfect for a fun family picnic or some quite with a loved one. Make sure to walk all the way to the top. this garden is much bigger than it seems! nominal entry charges of Rs 24.

  • Beautiful garden built by mughal rulers. It has nearly 12 terraces that are cut down on a mountain and it looks like they are merging into Dal lake. Very beautiful and well maintained garden. It's a tourist delight with full of all kinds of flowers and trees

  • One of the most popular places of Srinagar and i would recommend everyone to visit it atleast once. It has different feel in morning and evening. I would recommend going in morning if you want quite and alone stroll among flowers. Evenings are more happening with lights and crowd.

  • निशात बाग: निशात बाग, डल झील के पूर्वी तरफ स्थित है, जिसे 1633 में हसन आसफ खान, मुमताज महल के पिता और नूर जहान के भाई द्वारा बनाया गया था। निशात बाग का अर्थ होता है खुशियों का बगीचा। इस गार्डन में फूलों की दुर्लभ प्रजातियां, चिनार वृक्ष और सरू के पेड़ भी पाएं जाते हैं।यह मुगल गार्डन, क्षेत्र का सबसे बड़ा सीढ़ीदार उद्यान है। यहां स्थित सुंदर फव्‍वारों, बड़े से लॉन और खूबसूरत फूलों के कारण यह बगीचा काफी विख्‍यात है। कहा जाता है कि शाहजंहा प्रसिद्ध मुगल सम्राट और अब्दुल हसन आसफ खान का दामाद था और इस बाग को देखकर वह बहुत प्रभावित हुआ था। इसको देखने के बाद उसने चुपके से यह आशा व्‍यक्‍त की थी कि उसके ससुर उसे यह बाग उपहार में दे दें। बाद में ससुर द्वारा बगीचे को गिफ्ट न करने पर उसने बगीचे में पानी की सप्‍लाई को रूकवा दिया था।
