"Very beautiful garden with natural spring having pure sweet water. Chashme Shahi originally derives its name from the spring which was discovered by the great female saint of Kashmir, Rupa Bhawani, who was from the Sahib clan of Kashmiri Pandits. The family name of Rupa Bhawani was 'Sahib' and the spring was originally called 'Chashme Sahibi'. Over the years the name got corrupted and today the place is known as Chashme Shahi (the Royal Spring). Gardens around the spring were built on orders of Shah jahan. Must visit place in Sri Nagar. "

"It is very beautiful and charming Garden the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan gifted this Garden to his elder son Dara shikoh which killed later by his elder brother. The Garden was constructed around the fresh water spring. It is the smallest Garden among the three Mughal Gardens of Srinagar. The attractive part of the Garden is Spring which divided into 3 Parts, an aqueduct, waterfall and fountains."
