“Calm and quite with great views of Dal lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Pari Mahal, or 'The Fairies' Abode' is a great terraced garden that is quieter than the Mughal gardens. The layout is more cozy and intimate. It is well maintained and you can get excellent views of Dal lake from here.

Driving up to the garden from the main road circling Dal lake, your vehicle will be stopped for security checks since you will be going quite close to the Governor's official residence. So, budget about ten minutes extra for this. It is mostly hassle free.

Parking at the place is limited but should not be a problem unless you are going in the peak season. I would recommend going near dusk as the sunset views are quite good.
