Good view of Dal Lake and the surrounding mountains. Lots of history. Maintained by the BSF so quite clean as well.

Be prepared to climb up & down! The Mahal is a multi-level structure with vast gardens created for people to sit and enjoy the views. The mountains, the valleys & the lakes-all can be seen from Pari Mahal. The history of the Mahal is fascinating too. a must-visit!

This is one the four Mughal Gardens in Srinagar. Earlier it was Buddhist caves but later converted to Mughal palace. it is step by step gardens and monuments, well maintained place. Breathtaking view of Srinagar city is key attraction here.

Excellent view of the valley and dal lake. It reminds you of Chapora fort (Dil Chahta) fame of goa. You should definitely visit this place

lovely gardens and ruins, but a guy claiming to be the gardener may pester you for baksheesh :) Offers a great view of Srinagar's lakes, golf courses and colours

Great view of Dal Lake. Climbing up and down is a little tricky though. But worth a visit to get a view on the Dal Lake and the valley

We visited the Pari Mahal when we visited Chasme Shahi, the Royal Spring. This is where Aurangzeb killed his brother Dara Shikoh, as the story goes. The Pari Mahal has a better view of the city than Chashme Shashi. The seven terraced garden it is said resembles Machu Picchu in Peru.The garden is different from the other gardens in Srinagar...
