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.

  • Nice place in Srinagar, it's located on hill so one can enjoy view of Srinagar-Dal Lake. Must visit.
  • It is a seven terraced garden which was built by Dara Shikoh son of Shah Jahan. It was earlier used as a science observatory. Its a very nice place and the view from pari Mahal is breathtaking. We can see the whole dal lake and surrounding areas from the Mahal. The mughal architecture is also quite beautiful. It is worth going there and a must see tourist spot.

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
