Naseem Bagh is a Mughal garden built on the northwestern side of the Dal Lake, close to Srinagar in the Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir. The garden is one of the oldest Mughal garden in Kashmir, built by Mughal emperor Akbar in 1586. Over 1200 chinar trees were planted in 1686 by Shah Jahan. It is developed as Chinar Heritage Park by the University of Kashmir.[1] At present the park houses around 700 chinar trees. It is mostly visited in the autumn from September to December.[2][3]
