The name itself more than enough. It's a good place for selfie lovers, obviously nature everywhere around you with beautiful flowers and water fountains everywhere.

This is one of the places within the city which gives you the natural feel of Srinagar. The garden is well maintained and is a delight to see, especially for garden/flower lovers.

Lovely place to indulge into the Kashmiris culture. We need to pay for the entrance fees and a lot of Kashmiris families visit the place. As a foreigner, this is how we enjoy seeing the culture. I love this garden.

The garden was under renovation when we visited. Although it has several Chinese inspired buildings inside and very old Chinar trees, as the streams and fountains had been stopped it had lost its appeal for me.
