The prodigious river Jhelum is born in a spring veneered by a Mughal garden in Verinag. It is the first tourist attraction spot in Kashmir valley if you’re travelling by Jammu and is situated at the bottom of the hill covered by pine trees and evergreen plants. Being the major source of river Jhelum, this spring never dries up and never ceases to please with its magnificent beauty. Octagonal water tank sculpted with stones with attractive features to the garden and constructed fountains and cascades in a row line in front of the spring make this spring an added attraction to the Kashmir valley. It’s a must visit to relish the beauty of nature.
