Situated in the small village of Harwan at a distance of 15 km from Srinagar in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the picturesque Harwan Garden resembles a fairyland straight out of a Disney story. Set against the backdrop of majestic mountains, the Harwan Garden offers tourists a site of unadulterated beauty and complete nirvana. Its lush greenery, blossoming flowerbeds, tall chinar trees and sprawling lawns make it a prime picnic spot and one of the best tourist attractions in the Kashmir Valley.
Unlike the Mughal Gardens of Kashmir which are famous for their exquisitely designed terraces and beautiful fountains, the Harwan Garden relies on its pure natural beauty and mesmerizing charm to attract and delight tourists. It boasts a neat and clean concrete pathway with arched gates that are adorned with roses. A magnificently built canal, fed from a lake just behind the garden, passes through the center of the garden. This further enhances the Garden's enticing appeal and angelic charm. An ideal spot for picnics and excursions, the Harwan Garden is also considered as the gateway to the Dachi Gam Wildlife sanctuary. This place is also the base point for trekkers going to the Mahadev Mountain peak.
