Visit if you interested in having the spring water
Nov 2021
If one has visit any Mughal Garden or Pari mahal, this has nothing much to offer. It is known for the natural spring water, if you are into drinking or seeing the same, you can visit.

Okay - not a must do site
Aug 2021 • Solo
It is made in the same pattern as other mughal gardens but here you have @ 70 steps uphill. In the centre is the fountain and on the side lawns and flowers. The special thing is the natural spring water which will believed to be very pure.There are many lights in the garden so in the late evening they must be lighting the garden. Like all other gardens there is entry fee of ₹ 24. Overall it is okay and do visit if you have time.

Topography and the steepness of the land have led to the formation of the garden.
Apr 2021
Famous for its natural spring, and is one of the popular spots in Srinagar, catches the eyes of the tourists. Guide told us, it is discovered by the great female saint of Kashmir, Rupa Bhawani, the spring got its name from her clan and was originally called 'Chashme Sahibi'.

like Pari Mahal, it is Commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his elder son Dara Shikoh, Chashme Shahi, built by his governor Ali Mardan in 1632.

It is the smallest garden among the three Mughal gardens of Srinagar; the Shalimar garden is the largest and the Nishat garden is the second largest. All three gardens were built at the left bank of the Dal Lake, with Zabarwan mountains at the backdrop.

The topography and the steepness of the land have led to the formation of the garden. The garden's main focus is the spring that flows down in terraces and is divided into three sections: an aqueduct, waterfall, and fountains.

It is adjacent to Rajbhawan (Governor's house) and you can go through security check ( luggage too). and yes there is also a myth that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru only drank the pure waters of the Chashme Shahi spring. who knows...

Garden of Spring water
Apr 2021
The single point to visit this garden is to drink the spring water that comes straight from the mountains and is supposed to be pure for consumption. A very small (and somewhat delapidated) garden made in two levels, Moghul emperors came here only for the sweet spring water. It is a small drive up the hills from Tulip Gardens and can be visited on way to Pari Mahal.

Drink this water to instantly feel energy
Nov 2020
Always a must visit everytime I am in Srinagar, I never forget to drink some water from the Chashma-e-Shahi and take some back home also. Instant source of freshness and energy improves digestion as well

Vacation in Srinagar
Jan 2020
The place was partially covered in snow when we had visited so it would be unfair to review the beauty. However whatever was visible was well maintained and clean. The water flowing out of the gourge was clean as glass
