Take an autorickshaw ride up to Pari Mahal, a walled set of gardens providing a notable view of the surrounding area.

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.

  • From all over the ancient gardens that are on my most liked Srinagar Park. It is set in the mountains and Hill dilereng Lake dal in front of it is memanja eyes. Cascading garden shape makes the choice to enjoy the panorama is very varied. Very happy to walk around this park dsekitar. The Park also seems like Prima Donna young kids Sringar to scuba and dating. Almost every corner of the lovebirds seemed cool find their days among the green of the Park.

  • 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.
  • It's a kind of cave garden in Srinagar. Pretty much in ruins which makes it more spooky and interesting. This was earlier used as a prison during British era but now it's a tourist spot. You can have a clear and unmatched view of Dal Lake from this place. Char Chinar can be seen from here too. Must visit for a nature lover. Refer the attached images to feel the beauty of the place. If you are someone who likes getting pics clicked dressed as a prince or princess (very popular in India :D) then the photographer at this place is the best for this activity.
  • We often used to go there with friends. One of the best parks to hangout with ur friends. From here you can see the whole Dal Lake. Awesome view. It is among one of the mugal gardens. Best time to visit is from May to October. Best family park. Here you will find many small gardens and a cave type entrance. Do visit at least once in your life with your family.
  • It is beautiful historic place to visit. You can see the famous Dal Lake and foreshore from its terraces and lush green mountains. It is a wonder in itself.
  • Beautiful place but no one to guide you as to what the monument is, it gets monotonous. Sidenote: The washrooms are out of the world. 5 stars to the washrooms.
