Acchabal, built by Nur Jahan, wife of Mughal Emperor Jahangir, is a garden which is popular among tourists. Built in the year 1620 A.D, this garden is known for an ancient spring surrounded by a beautiful terrace garden. Chinar trees, springs, and lush green lawns further enhance the beauty of the place. The garden was built in such a way that the water of the spring enters the garden forming a waterfall. The upper area of the garden, previously known as 'Bag-e-Begum Abad' comprising a ‘hamam’ or ‘treasure of water’, later became popular as Sahib Abad. Mughal prince, Dara Shikoh, later erected a mosque in the garden.
Acchabal is located at a distance of 8 kilometres from Anantnag and 56 kilometres from Srinagar. Visitors can avail accommodations in tourist bungalows and rest houses located in proximity. Activities such as fishing and camping are also available near this garden.
