The Mughal Gardens
The enchanting charm induced by this tourist attraction sends sparkling ripples in to the hearts of men with its fresh-water fountains, cascading streams, airy pavilions and limpid pools. This garden was exclusively constructed for the Emperors of the Mughal dynasty and beholds a huge array of hued flowers with scents spreading far and wide. The Nishat Bagh lingers to the border of the Dal Lake and was built by the brother of Empress Nur Jahan, Asaf Khan. Chashmi-e Shahi or the Royal Spring, is considered the smallest garden that comes with illuminations. Moreover, the spring to which this place owes its origin, is supposed to have medicinal value.
