It's historical place and you should visit during evening or early morning . There is beautiful garden and srinagar view from Pari Mahal is just awasome. It's ahead from chashme shahi so you can plan to see both place together.

Pari mahal is a heritage sight built by Mughal king Shahjahan on one of the highest places of Srinagar, from where entire Srinagar is visible. Mahal itself and its location is a must visit place of Srinagar.

Widely unpopular location as compared to other places in Srinagar. One can just just and enjoy the view of complete dal lake from this amazing spot. Highly recommended for photography enthusiasts.

The view of the city from here is majestic. The dilapidated ruins of an old fort has good gardens with exotic roses all around.
