4.1
Take an autorickshaw ride up to Pari Mahal, a walled set of gardens providing a notable view of the surrounding area. Built during the 17th century as a library and residence for Mughal Prince Dara Shikoh, the arches and stone walls of the seven-terraced garden represent fine examples of contemporary Islamic architecture and design. Overlooking the nearby city and lake, the gardens offer extensive views of the surrounding area, with its uninterrupted vistas chief among the reasons so many take the trip up here.

  • Very beautiful and historic place. Very much clean and green every where. So nice place to visit. You can watch the whole Dal Lake from here, awesome view. During the British ruin this place was for prisoners. Now it is a beautiful tourist place. Srinagar is the nearest airport and by road communication as well. Very busy place. Lots of parking space available here.
  • A beautiful place of mughal history. the period of Shahjahan it is called Pari Mahal or the angels is a seven terrace garden. its looks heavenly to watch to feel and to spend time with friends/family. From the top of hill a breathtaking view of Srinagar and Dal lake can be seen.
  • A must see when one visits Srinagar. A seven layered terrace garden. Great views. Great spot for a photo shoot
  • Storeyed Garden beautiful seating and overlooking the whole Srinagar. Sunsets are beautiful here. Maintenance work needed to preserve and restore to architecture / building.
  • Not one of the must see places in Srinagar but still a good Garden + small architectural building. However views from this place are too good.
