Great views of the city and if you are a history buff then it is a must see as this is one of the very few surviving monuments that were built by Dara Shikoh. The terraces are decently maintained. Spend a couple of hours absorbing the serenity of the surrounding area.

Mahal is not well maintained and not worth visiting. But the view is awesome from the top and great for clicking pics. Local people charge toll from outside vehicles which is unethical. During rush parking is really a mess as one is there to arrange the parking area.

It takes a bit of effort to reach here. Driving here from Srinagar can take up to an hour but at the end of the drive, you’re rewarded with fantastic view of the lake and the Lalit Palace and golf course. Now while all that is great, I think the best view of the lake was still from the Vivanta... More

Except a higher view from where one can see the pictursque golf course there is nothing much to look forward to. But, the way to pari mahal is quiet nice.

Simply glorious view out over Dal Lake from the ruined Mughal era library. Just stunning - visit just before sunset to see it at its finest.

Go to this place half an hour before sunset. When the sun sets, the view of the Dal Lake and surrounding is mesmerising.

It gives the idea of Islamic architecture of Mughal era. It is located on hillock facing towards a dal lake which gives a splendid view of the lake and srinagar city. You need to hire a cab to visit this place. Do visit, its a nice place.
