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.

  • The seven terraced majestic garden built by Dara Shikoh is magnificent. It was a library and abode of the Prince. It over looks the city of Srinagar and provides a magnificent view of the city. All the seven terraces are connected by stairways which need maintenance. The Palace gardens are well maintained and hosts a wide range of flowers. There are plenty of variety of roses and seasonal flowers. There are a few magnolia trees and the flowers are a delight. The Pari or the angel descends only after dark and by then the place is closed for the visitors thus there is no chance to meet the resident Pari.
  • What a beautiful place it is in Srinagar. Although every place is creating life time memory in Srinagar but this Parimahal having historical attachment and making different from others
  • There are 3 levels of gardens here. But the steps are too steep. The restroom is very neatly maintained. Very good view of the whole city
  • Very nice and historical place. Nice architecture to see and mind blowing panoramic view of the city.
  • Excellent scenery all around. Serene ambiance and calmness in the place. Offers a bird's eye view of Srinagar and the Dal lake
