Hari Parbat Fort - Review
Hari Parbat is a historically very significant monument situated on the banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar. The presence of a Temple, A Gurudwara and a Mosque make this beautiful fort a unique destination.
Mughal emperor Akbar dreamt of a new capital Nager Nagor inside the fort on this site. Although his project remained incomplete, a fort was later built by Shuja Shah Durani in 1808.
Many legends are associated with this hill fort. The Hindus, Muslims and the Sikhs have different stories that glorify this fort. A huge pebble thrown by a goddess to crush a demon became this hill according to the Hindu legends.
Sikhism tells the tale of devoted old lady who was cremated here by Gurusahib himself whereas Muslims consider the fort sacred for the shrine of Sheikh Hamza Makhdum that is situated in the fort surroundings.
Known for the unique and spectacular architecture, Persian inscriptions can be still found on the Kathi darwaza. The fort closed for visitors for 26 years, was recently thrown open to public recently.

Amazing and exceptional trip to Hari parbat. If you wanna to revive the historical spirit in yourself then do visit to such monuments you will get the idea of the emperor's of erstwhile era, their zest and zeal for intricate architecture and also the longing for reigning the empire forever. These forts gives us the clue about how the strategies were used to counter the onslaught of enemies.
One of the most beautiful location located fort which is the central of the city and been a most targeted place in Srinagar. That's the reason it's always been kept under the army surviliance. It was the main fort at the kingdom time and was well maintained. It is not been maintained in the way it should be, but still the views from above are charasmatic.
Its quite a wonderful place. It should be open for long time but the fort has been shut at 3 pm thats i think little earlier. ..but the experience was quite amazing and the city view was ver fantastic. ..
A nice place to visit in Srinagar. It gives us a clear view of Srinagar town from its top. You can also see a temple, Gurudwara and mosque at same place. A hestoric site and ticket at entrance is 50 for adults and 30 for kids.
One of the most satisfying and peaceful places you will every visit. The look and the scenery is just beyond that can be expressed in words.
