The former pleasure retreat of Mughal empress Nur Jahan, the springs at Achabal, gushing out of the Sonsanwar Hill, are a virtual treat for the eyes. The pristine springs are surrounded by splendid Mughal Gardens laid out in a unique Persian style. Majestic chinar trees line the garden, which is situated at the foot of a hill, around 58 km away from Srinagar. The water from the springs flows through the garden in three channels and several fountains add to the site's charm.


It is believed that the source of the springs is the Brengi Nallah that disappears in fissures of limestone at Dewalgam, a small village nearby, . Other attractions of Achabal are its stepped terraces, conventional elegance and ornamental shrubs.
