Ladhak & Kashmir 2010 - Day 14 - Srinagar - Nishat Bagh
Nishat Bagh was special. One long walk from one end to the other one far away, made up of several levels. You walked some distance along the central canal which had fountains and then climbed a short flight of steps and then on the next level, you walked some more until the next set of steps and so on. At the other end was a building made of what looked like sandstone. The windows were covered with trellis work. It wasn’t much. So the journey was what you enjoyed the most.
On either side of the central pathway, if you looked, you would find lawns, rose gardens, manicured gardens, flower pots, fountains, trees and then the mountains in the background.
It was quite sunny, our path wasn’t shaded. The trees were mostly on the periphery of the garden. We didn’t spend much time there. My folks were hungry and we had the auto driver take us to a restaurant. It was a fancy restaurant for Srinagar.
