about nishat bagh

Nishat Bagh is carved out of a hillside. It comprises 12 terraced levels rich with magnificent old chinars and rows of flowers. It has a beautiful Mughal central water channel with several fountains. Seen from the top, the garden cascades down and reaches out to the Dal Lake. The topmost terrace is the zenana garden. 

Nishat Garden was commissioned by Nur Jehan’s brother Asif Khan in 1633. According to legend, Shah Jahan, Jahangir’s son, was so taken by the garden that he expressed his appreciation thrice to Asif Khan in the hope of getting it as a gift but to no avail. This led to a minor falling out between the two; for a while Shah Jahan actually turned off the water supply for Nishat, which came through his Shalimar!
