Available Attractions

Royal Springs Golf Course

Royal Springs Golf Course

The Royal Springs Golf Course is easily one of the most stunning & breathtaking golf courses you would play in India with the Zabarwan hills in the background & the Dal lake around the corner. The course is spread over 300 acres of rolling hills, native deciduous forest, lakes, wilderness with the occasional marsh. Don’t be surprised if you spot the rare Hangul lurking in the thickets. A wide variety of bird life can be spotted on the course including a large number of kites at the 9th hole & 18th hole as they feast on the fish that thrive in the water bodies adjoining these holes. The course was built out a forest & has huge changes in undulations & scenery making it a pleasure to play on. The Royal Spring Golf course (RSGC) is located close to the Mughal garden, Chashma Shahi, at the foothills of Zabarvan hills & overlooks the tranquil Dal Lake. The designer of this beautiful course is the globally acclaimed Robert Trent Jones Jr. II. He has designed over 500 golf courses around the world including some of the longest courses in the USA. Clubs are available for hire & buggies are mandatory as at this altitude as it could be foolish to walk the course unless you have been playing high altitude courses. Expect your ball to travel at least 10% further on this course. The biggest challenge is handling the rough on this course & reading the lines & slopes on the greens. A tip we picked up – if you are putting in the direction of the hills – it is often a uphill putt even if it looks downhill !!! That could save you a few 4 putts ( yes you heard that right – 4 putts are common the first time you play here ) -

Dal Lake

Dal Lake

Dal Lake is a lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir. The urban lake, which is the second largest in the state, is integral to tourism and recreation in Kashmir and is named the Jewel in the crown of Kashmir or Jewel of Srinagar. The lake is also an important source for commercial operations in fishing and water plant harvesting. The shore line of the lake, is about 15.5 kilometers (9.6 mi), is encompassed by a boulevard lined with Mughal era gardens, parks, houseboats and hotels. Scenic views of the lake can be witnessed from the shore line Mughal gardens, such as Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Bagh built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir and from houseboats cruising along the lake in the colorful shikaras. During the winter season, the temperature sometimes reaches -11 °C (12 °F), freezing the lake.

Khanqah of Shah-i-Hamadan

Khanqah of Shah-i-Hamadan

This mosque, situated on the right bank of the Jhelum River, is an excellent example of indigenous wood architecture that draws inspiration from Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic architecture. Constructed by Sultan Sikandar and dedicated to the memory of Mir Sayyid Ali Hamdani, a Muslim saint from Hamadan, Persia, this mosque also serves as a khanqah. In the Ain-i-Akbari of Abul Fazal, there is mention of a saint living in Srinagar and founding this monastery in his name. The mosque has been raised to the ground and rebuilt three times. Ravaged by fire in 1480, it was reconstructed and expanded by Sultan Hassan Shah. In 1493 it was demolished and rebuilt as a two-story structure. Again in 1731 fire destroyed the mosque; Abul Barkat Khan reconstructed it.

Tomb of the Mother of Zain-ul-Abidin

Tomb of the Mother of Zain-ul-Abidin

Tomb of the Mother of Zain-ul-Abidin Hidden away in the bazaar streets between Zaina Kadal and the river, this unusual brick mausoleum, the Tomb of the Mother of Zain-ul-Abidin marks the final resting place of the favorite wife of Sultan Sikander. This is interesting in a couple of ways, the first being in the architecture of the main mausoleum itself, and the second in the evidence of it having being built at the site of an earlier Hindu temple. The main mausoleum (containing the tomb of the eponymous mother of Zain-ul-Abidin) is a 15th c brick masonry structure decorated with glazed blue tiles. The shape of the structure is unusual though, being reminiscent of church architecture.

Jama Masjid

Pari Mahal

Pari Mahal

The gardens were established by Prince Dara Shikoh in the mid-1600s on the ruins of a Buddhist monastery. Dara, the son of Emperor Shah Jahan, followed the Qadiri order of Sufi Islam and made the garden for his tutor; it was further used as an observatory, useful for teaching astrology and astronomy
