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.

  • One of the most beautiful place I have ever been too. From the top you get to see clear view of the Srinagar town (according to locals) though due to snow and intense fog I missed that view.
  • Nothing great other than a broken little fort like structure, one can just climb over to the top and enjoy the surrounding scenic beauty of this place. You may like to click some pics here.if this review has helped you in any way pl encourage by hitting that like button
  • Best place with ceiling garden. Peace. This place offers scenic beauty and Dal Lake view. Though it's little far from Dal Lake, once can also come on foot. This is multistorey building with garden and old age monuments. I liked every part over here. If you're traveling by car, you need to take ticket here that cost Rs 30 per person. And it is worth it.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Its covered by mountains. From there you can see the beautiful view of Dal Lake and Tulip garden. The place is quite calm and soothing. There are four beautiful gardens with beautiful flowers terraced one above another . We clicked the beautiful pictures there. Management is good and cleanliness is up to the mark. Best time to visit the place during summers so that you can see the greenery and beautiful view of city. Must visit if you have ever been to Kashmir.
  • Pari Mahal , also known as The Palace of Fairies, is a seven-terraced garden located at the top of Zabarwan mountain range, overlooking the city of Srinagar and the south-west of Dal Lake.From top u can see beautiful view of dal lake and Srinagar city.Parking is also available .The view is mesmerizing preferably at sunset in summer. Lots of space for families to enjoy .
