Nishat Garden

Anil Kumar
This is the second largest Mughal garden in Srinagar and has an awesome backdrop of Zabarwan mountain range behind this and also Pir Panjal range in the far distance. Nishat Bagh in Urdu means Garden of Delight, Garden of Joy, and Garden of Delight. This garden is much more delightful and vivid than Shalimar with 12 terraces representing 12 zodiac signs with a long water canal of 4 metres wide having Chinar and Cypress trees on both the sides. But the garden doesn’t have that royal touch as it is in Shalimar as it is not an imperial garden. Presently only 9 terraces can be seen due to the construction of roads along the garden. The top most terrace of the Nishat garden has Zenana garden with two storey porch surrounded by beautiful saplings.Year Built: - 1633.Entry Fee: - 10 rs per person.Timings to Visit: - 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. (Closed on Fridays).Location: - 11 kms from the city centre.
