Mughal Garden

There is a Mughal (also spelt as Mohgul) garden, built by Nur Jahan, by the lake. It's called Garoka, meaning bay window, due to its view out over the lake.

Safapur

A grove of Chinar trees at the nearby village of Safapur is known as Badshah Boni, royal Chinar, and was planted in imitation of the Nasim Bagh in Srinagar . A canal taken from the Sindh River, constructed by a Badshah in the 15th century, irrigates Safapur. Nearby is a cave dug by a mystic, with his grave lying next to a small shrine. Near this is situated a tourist hut.

A Campsite

Camping is possible at another lakeside Chinar grove known as Qoz Bagh. There is also a government rest house by the lake
