Chota Kashmir's Bollywood Connection

This is a wonderful garden situated at a distance of 3-4 km from the Goregaon side door and on the highest point of a little mount. Consequently, it is properly called Chota Kashmir. It overlooks the rest of the Aarey Colony. You may have seen this garden in numerous Bollywood films. A long time back, when Bollywood couldn't stand to shoot in Kashmir or Shimla, it bounded across from Film City so they could shoot scenes here. This is the place where the legendary actor Late Rajesh Khanna sang the sweetest song for shy Sharmila Tagore in Aradhana. Today, it's a most loved place for couples, family, and friends for their free day from work or school.

Chhota Kashmir has enough green and dry shade, basic facilities like food and water and abundant space for opening the picnic baskets and bags and relishing time with family and friends.

Kashmir Lake

Chota Kashmir has another Kashmir connection, the Kashmir lake spread on 4 acres of land is opposite Chhota Kashmir and right over the street. It is famous for the boat rides, and the colourful two or four-seater boat will surely catch your attention. The rides are accessible between 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. You can enjoy the boat rides for 30 minutes or 50 minutes in a pocket-friendly way. The chirping of birds, fresh air, and quiet environment add some extra charm to your boat ride.
