Sangin Darwaza Overview

Ranked 35 of 53 sightseeing in Srinagar
Sangin Darwaza, one of the two entrance gates of the Hari Prabat Fort, is situated at a distance of 6 km from Srinagar.
Overlooking the Dal Lake and situated on Hari Parbat, this fort can be reached from two sides of the city. One entrance is from Rainawari through Kathi Darwaza while the other entrance is from Hawal through Sangin Darwaza.
Sangin Darwaza is a huge arched gate built with stone in typical Mughal architectural style. Unlike Kathi Darwaza, Sangin Darwaza does not have any Persian inscriptions on the walls and ceiling.
The other monuments found inside this fort that are worth visiting near Sangin Darwaza include the shrine of Akhun Mulla, Sharika Devi Temple, and Gurdwara Chatti Patshahi. One can also visit the shrine of Sheikh Hamza Makhdum located right outside the fort.
The best time to visit Sangin Darwaza would be during Harnavami, the birthday of Sharika Devi, in the month of Ashada (mid June to mid July) which is celebrated with great zeal at Sharika Devi Temple with night long singing of hymns in the praise of Goddess.
Located near the city of Srinagar, Sangin Darwaza is easily accessible by road or by walking.
