  • One of the beautiful places in Srinagar City. On the top of the Mount, situating the marvel architect of the Medieval Kashmir. The whole vicinity round the mount gives you majestic view of the whole city all around. If you are religious then you could have some spiritual touches from the religious sights over there. The only painstaking is that the fort on the top is occupied by the security forces and likely to be ravished with the passage of the time.
