Pari Mahal

#Monument in Srinagar

Pari Mahal is a terraced plant arranged toward the southwest of Dal Lake, over the celebrated Chashme Shahi Garden. On the other hand known as Quntilon and Fairies' Abode, it is numbered among the star attractions of Srinagar. Mughal head Shah Jahan's child Dara Shikoh manufactured this garden in the memory of Mullah Shah Badakhshi – his coach, who lectured the Qadiri request of Sufi Islam. The stupendous garden was utilized as a galactic observatory and a critical learning place for prophetic science.

This delightfully arranged garden covers a sprawling region that is 122 meters long and 62.5 meters in width. It involves six porches, which have isolate water tanks that are filled through underground pipes. The verdant and all around manicured yard with brilliant blossoms and natural product trees adds to the general interest of this green space. Pari Mahal has constantly intrigued the Hindi film industry and has been the shooting area of a few Bollywood motion pictures like Tum aagaye ho, Aandhi (1975), Lamhaa (2010), Madhno and Main kaun hoon. You can click photos of its wonderful yards or catch the display of Dal Lake and its incorporating mountains.
