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
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
This is a beautiful place but I will highly recommend to get a auto and don't take taxi for site seeing in Srinagar because taxi will charge 4-5 times more fares then auto and they are too rude and aggressive. I visited Srinagar last month with my family we were 4 people and we got a taxi from Srinagar airport he took us to Mughal Garden and then Dal lake and for these he took 1300 RS. firstly we thought it's the price every where in Srinagar but when we went to hotel the owner told us that we should have taken auto instead because he take only 300 RS.
Nishant Garden is on the banks of famous Dal Lake in Srinagar. It is the choicest attraction of tourists visiting Kashmir. Best season to tour this Garden is from April to September. Although it remains packed with tourists during this season but access to entry tickets is not that much troublesome. After touring the garden you can enjoy some delicious food right outside the garden on the banks of famed Dal Lake.
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.
