Old multi-story garden

Pari Mahal is old multi-story garden with nice view, there are no fountain in Pari Mahal, only rocky building and garden. We clicked some photos and enjoyed the view, it took us only 20min to complete sightseeing and clicking photos. Not a must see place in Srinagar.

Good place with beautiful city view

Mahal is created by Mughal's. You can see city view from Mahal. Nothing more there to spent. Go early in the morning and spent time there. When go to Chashm-e-Shahi then you can go Paro Mahal as it is very near.

Less entrance fee and good sightseeing

Wonderful Mahal in the middle of the mountain with stepped gardens above and below the entrance. Hats of to the gardeners and the whole maintenance staff to keep the place absolutely pleasant which has tulips too.With an entrance fees of Rs. 10/- as usual in all the gardens in Srinagar. The views from here is fabulous we can see the Helipad from here and also Governor's house along with brilliant golf course. Must visit for all age groups when you are in Srinagar.

Nice place to visit

Many videos of the songs of Aandhi movie, a movie of Sanjeev Kumar have been shot here. Chashmeshahi is also a good place for outing and picnic. Open gardens are there.

The view of Srinagar from this place is good

It's type of an old cave, but the view of Srinagar from this place is good. So, if you want good view of Srinagar then it's good but there was not much to do in pari mahal.
