Destination in Srinagar
About Dal Lake
The Dal Lake is famous of the World. Dal
Lake at the foot of the Zabarwan Mountains, with
Shankaracharya hill in its South, and Hazratbal on its West;
is the lake Par-excellence- the Dal. The lotus flower cover it
in autumn, the Dal is ideal site fro magnificent Houseboats,
while "Shikaras" skim about with the sails in the transparent
waters of the Lake. Areas of the Dal Lake are grouped with
slanting roofed houses on islands, while other parts seems
lush green like well-planned gardens. As the eye travels
onward, houseboats, houses and vegetation conclude unevenly
and two huge sheet-like bodies of water - the Bod Dal & Lokut
Dal, come into view.
Mughal Gardens in Srinagar
The Mughal Gardens with their terraced gardens, numerous maple
trees, refreshing fountains and blooming flowers, have become
the outstanding attributes of Srinagar. Situated in the far
eastern side of panoramic Dal Lake, The Shalimar Bagh(garden)
and the Nishant Bagh are the most beautiful of all that are
there in the city. Even Chashmashahi, though small, has made
its mark as a successful tourist spot due to its spring of
sweet and refreshing water which was once used for drinking by
The Shalimar were built by Emperor Jehangir for his wife Nur
Jahan, 'light of the world' in 1616. Although it is known
today as the 'garden of love' it was originally named the
Farah Bakhsh or 'delightful garden'. The garden is built in
four terraces with traditional water channel running down the
middle. The gardens measure 540 by 183 metres. During the
Mughal period the top terraces used be reserved for the
emperor and the ladies of the court and was the most
magnificent. It included a pavilion made of black stone in the
middle of the tank. Black Marble fluted pillars supported the
pavilion, which was used as a banquet hall. Shalimar Bagh has
an air of seclusion and repose, and its rows of fountains and
shaded trees seem to recede towards the snowcapped mountains.
A Son Et Lumeiere or sound and light show is put on here every
evening during the May to October tourist season.
The Nishat Bagh is another lovely garden with its 12 terraces
representing the 12 signs of the zodiac, which descend
gradually and seem to almost merge into the lake. It is
situated on the banks of world famous Dal Lake in the backdrop
of Zabarwan hills. With its flowerbeds, trees, fountains, the
Nishat presents a dramatic sight. The gardens were designed in
1633 by Asaf Khan, brother of Nur Jahan, and follow the same
pattern as the Shalimar gardens with a polished stone channel
running down the centre and a series of terraces. It's the
largest of the Mughal gardens measuring 548 metres by 338
metres, and often the most crowed. The walks beside the
channel are bordered with lines of cypresses and Chinars. Also
found within its vicinity are some remains of Mughal period
buildings including a double storey pavilion enclosed on two
sides latticed windows.
The old Sufi college of Pari Mahal, the 'palace of the
fairies', is only a short distance above the Chasma Shahi
gardens. One can easily walk from the gardens up to the Pari
Mahal then follow a footpath directly down the hill to the
road that runs by the Oberoi Palace Hotel. The Pari Mahal
consists of a series of arched terraces. Recently it has been
turned into a very pleasant and well-kept garden with fine
views over Dal Lake. It's attractively sited on a spur of the
Zabarwan Mountains. The gardens are beautifully kept even
today and a Son Et Lumiere show is put on here every evening
during the May to October tourist season.
Cheshma Shahi is the first Mughal garden one 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, Cheshma Shahi has only three terraces in
addition to a natural spring of water enclosed in a stone
pavilion. Smallest of the Srinagar Mughal gardens, measuring
just 108 metres by 38 metres, the Chasma Shahi, or 'Royal
Spring', are well up the hillside, above the Nehru Memorial
Park. The fresh water spring in these pleasant, quieter
gardens is reputed to have medicinal properties. The gardens
were laid out in 1632 by Ali Mardan Khan and include three
terraces, an aqueduct, waterfalls and fountains.
The Temple of Shankaracharya
The Temple of Shankaracharya is balanced on a high
octagonal plinth, on a hill called as Takht-i-Suleiman in
Srinagar district. The temple dates back to 250 BC and over
the time has become an important landmark on the face of
Srinagar. It is said that the legendary philosopher Sri
Shankaracharya stayed in this temple when he came to Kashmir
to spread Sanatan Dharma. The temple is dedicated to Lord
Shiva and holds a lot of importance in religious as well as
architectural context. The temple is built up of specially
smoothened rocks which have been set at the peak of the hill
with unimaginable precision. From the height at which this
temple is located, you can have a scintillating bird's eye
view of entire Srinagar.
