Cheshmashahi is the first Mughal Garden you will pass after Nehru Park. Built at a height above the city, its views are as stupendous as its layout. The smallest of Srinagar’s Mughal Gardens, Cheshmashahi has only three terraces in additionto a natural spring of water enclosed in a stone pavilion.
The next garden along the road that encircles the Dal is the Nishat built by Empress Noor Jahan’s brother Asif Khan.
The largest of the gardens Nishat has several terraces, a central water course and a majestic site between theDal and the Zabarwan hills.
