Built in the 16th century, the garden overlooks the Dal Lake and has a dramatic backdrop of the mountain ranges behind it. We later drive to visit yet another garden known as Shalimar. The garden is smaller then Nishat, but nonetheless is very beautiful with huge stone pavilions set amidst water pools and lush green trees swaying to and fro in the light breeze. Later we will visit Cheshma Shahi, Pari Mahal and Shankaracharya temple. After spending the afternoon here, we drive to the shores of Dal lake and begin a boat ride in the backwaters of the lake, visiting some boat communities and steeping on the little floating gardens.
