Location : Near Hazratbal Mosque, Srinagar, Kashmir Region, J&K
Built By: Emperor Akbar
Built In: 1586
Famous As: Kashmir's Oldest Muhgal Garden

Only a short distance beyond the Hazratbal mosque, the Nasim gardens, the 'garden of tepid airs' or 'garden of the morning breeze', were built by the Mughal emperor Akbar after his conquest of Kashmir in 1586. He had 1,200 Chinar trees planted in the garden, which is the oldest of Kashmir's Mughal gardens.

Today it's used by an engineering college and is not kept up for the public like the other Mughal gardens in Srinagar . It is possible to camp in this garden, but permission has to be obtained from the Tourist Reception Centre.
