Most of the tourists make it a point to visit all the gardens of Srinagar like Shalimar Bagh, Nishat Bagh, Chashme Shahi, Botanical Garden and Tulip Garden. If you have a cramped up itinerary and only 1-2 days in Srinagar, it is not worth it to visit all gardens and spend an hour in each of them. I found all the Gardens to be equally good and you will not regret visiting one and skipping the other. I will advise you to spend at least 3 hours in one Garden and soak in the beauty and tranquility of the place. If you have to choose one garden, then Nishat Garden is better because of location

Shalimar Garden was built by Mughal Emperor, Jahangir for his wife Noor Jahan in1633. With Zabarwan Mountain in the background and mesmerising Dal Lake in its forefront, the garden attracts maximum tourists in Srinagar. If you wish to spend few hours in peace and get lost in 'Jannat', this is the place to be. You will definitely love the flowers and the fountains around. Must visit for a couple on a romantic holiday or honeymoon!

I enjoyed my visit to Shalimar Bagh in Srinagar. It was a nice practice session for my newly bought DSLR camera. I feel the authorities should try and maintain this historical garden, as a few fountains have stopped working. I visited all the gardens in Srinagar except Tulip garden as it was closed. My order of preference is Chashme Shahi, Shalimar Bagh, Nishat Garden and Botanical Garden

It's a lovely and peaceful park and a must visit while in Srinagar. The good thing is that you will not be disturbed by consistent sales attempt of hawkers and touts, except for a few photographers selling portraits. You can dress up in Kashmiri dresses and get yourself clicked in around Rs.200 or Rs.250. They tend to ask Rs. 500 from foreigners though and you should try and bargain.

Shalimar Bagh is the largest garden in Srinagar. The admission tickets are Rs 20 for Indians and Rs. 10 for children. There are no extra charges for carrying the camera inside. The fountains give a lovely feel to the park. You will find the park full of flowers like dDaisy, roses, marigold, dahlias, pansy and magnolia. There are good eating joints for street food outside the park.
