Once A Buddhist Monastery, Then A Mughal Observatory, Pari Mahal Still Looks Over Srinagar

Published on 25 June, 2016 at 11:33 pm By

Pari Mahal (Fairies’ Abode) is a garden covering seven terraces, located at the top of Zabarwan mountain range, which overlooks Srinagar, and southwest of the Dal Lake.

In the mid-1600s, there stood the old remains of a Buddhist monastery on top of the Zabarwan mountain range. Here, the son of Emperor Shah Jahan, Dara Shikoh, built the Pari Mahal. Following the orders of Sufi Islam, Dara Shikoh built the place as a library and residence for his tutor.

Pari Mahal, which has a beautiful lawn with a spring in the middle of it, was later used an observatory for teaching astronomy and astrology.

The building is lit up at night and is visible from most places in Srinagar. In the light, the gorgeous architecture of the place is beautifully highlighted.
