In 1969 a botanical garden was made near the shores of Dal Lake besides the Zabarwan mountain range. It was made to remember India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and thus had the name Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Botanical Garden. The Garden is at Srinagar, in the State of Jammu & Kashmir, which has an area of 70 hectares. The other aim behind developing the park was to conserve the city’s natural habitat and to beautify the city. The garden is known to have about 1.5 lakh pant species. It also have many types of Oak trees and many endemic kashmiri pants. Visitors can go for a boat ride in the lake and can spent some time and rest in the garden. Four divisions make up the Garden they are Plant Introduction Center, Research Section, Recreational Garden and Botanical Garden. Visitors can enter the garden by buying a ticket.
