Situated at a height of 1,677 m, Achabal is a visual treat for the eyes. Achabal is adorned with one of the best Mughal Gardens in India. The beautifully laid out garden in the Mughal (Persian) style sparkles with a charm and character, which is quite unique to it. Sprawling Chinar trees line the garden, which is situated at the foot of a hill. The other attractions of the Achabal in the Kashmir Valley of India are its stepped terraces, conventional elegance, ornamental shrubs, gleaming fountains and flowing water. The place is notable for an ancient spring surrounded by a garden terraced and developed by the Mughals. The upper portion of the garden is called 'Bag-e-Begum Abad' developed by Malika Nur Jehan Begum in 1616 AD and renowned as Sahib Abad in which there is a Hamam (treasure of water) getting heat from a logical lamp (Tosnag).
Cascades and fountains have been erected by Mughal Emperors. A mosque standing in the garden is believed to have been constructed by Mughal Prince Dara Shikwah. Achabal was once the pleasure retreat of Empress Nur Jehan. A trout hatchery is also located nearby. Achabal is the site of a Mughal garden called Achabal Gardens.
