don't waste your time and money in Parimahal. Just an old structure with an O.K view of the valley. not much to do there apart from getting yourself clicked in a Kashmiri dress, which you can do anyhere in Srinagar.

It was thrilling to climb up the top of the terraced Pari Mahal,built in 1650 by Dara Shikoh,the eldest son of Shah Jehan,the Mughal Emperor.,Perched over a hillock overlooking the beautiful Dal lake,it gives a panoramic view of the Dal Lake. The sunset was beautiful.

Pari Mahal was built by the Mughal Prince Dara Shikoh. This is not a Mahal but actually a garden which is five storied. Also a BSF Camp. The garden has a small pool and is a site covered by archaelogical survey of India.

Pari Mahal is situated at a good height giving it a benefit of a panaromic view of Srinagar! The view and the garden is refreshing, minus the unruly tourists who throw waste anywhere in the ponds and garden! High fine should be charged for such people.
