Photographer's Note

The Nishat Bagh near the Dal lake is a 12 terraced garden filled with endearing flowers and beautiful trees. It has a splendid central water channel with several fountains, which is surrounded by tall Chinar trees. The garden is very photogenic and attracts a lot of young couples and families. Even though the layout of Nishat Bagh was based on the design of the Persian gardens, the actual landscaping of the garden was done in accordance with the terrain and water patterns unique to Kashmir Valley. The garden is sprawled over a vast area that gently ascends as one moves towards the interior of the garden. A stream of standstill water divides the garden into two halves, and each level of the garden is marked by a raised embankment which has its collection of kaleidoscopic flowers waiting to be photographed. Lush green grass carpets the garden floor which is embellished with flowers of all conceivable colours and trees such as chinar, Cyprus and almond. The Mughal Princess Zuhra Begum, the daughter of the Mughal emperor Alamgir II, and granddaughter of the emperor Jahandar Shah, was buried in the garden. Source : holidify; wiki
