Mughal Garden of Verinag located about 61 km south of Srinagar at the foothill of Banihal Mountain ranges. Covering a total area of 5.30 hectares, the garden fascinates the tourists with its beautiful manicured lawns, flower beds, majestic chinar trees and gushing spring at the backdrop of lush and dense forest. This garden was originated from a gushing mountain spring of Verinag, which is the source of the River Jhelum. Mughal Emperor Jahangir was impressed by the beauty of the spring and its surrounding areas. Soon then, he built an octagonal water tank of sculptured stones in 1620 AD. Seven years later, his son Shah Jahan added some attractive features to the garden and constructed fountains and cascades in row lines in front of the spring. He also built hot and cold baths in the garden of which only ruins are now left and preserved.
