About Charari Sharief

Charar-e-Sharif is also known as ChashmaShahi and was built during the 1632. This famous Mughal garden was built by Ali Maran Khan who was the governor of the state. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan issued the instructions to build this garden. He gifted this garden to his eldest son DaraShikoh. The Charar-e-Sharif got its name from the ChashmeSahibi spring. The spring was named after the name of RupaBhawani who was also known as Sahib. The water of the ChashmeSahibi spring is famous for its medicinal and healing properties. The famous monument “PariMahal”is located next to the garden. The garden covers an area of one acre. It is 108 metre long and 38 meter wide. Charar-e-Sharif lies on the banks of the picturesque Dal Lake. Dozens of flowers bloom in the garden during the spring season.
