The Temple is well maintained and has a gorgeous view of the city from above
Sep 2021
- The Temple is well maintained and has a gorgeous view of the city from above
- The climb is steep but enough places to take a breather enroute
- There is drinkable water on top to refill bottles
- One would have to leave their cell phones back in the car since owing to security reasons they are not allowed to be carried up into the temple premises

Divine Experience!
Aug 2021
It's a beautiful place situated hilltop!
243 steps to be precise, so if you're not much of a climber, you might want to rethink this. But, it's a very peaceful and divine place up, above! You can see this temple even from the Dal Lake! Definitely worth a visit.

steep steps but worth it
Jul 2021
The temple can be reached by climbing nearly 230 steps , quite steep . However it was well worth the effort . The ancient temple, though small is beautifully constructed and has a big shivalinga . The view is lovely of srinagar and around . The place is quiet and peaceful .

Divine and Majestic
Aug 2021 • Couples
A majestic place , commanding fabulous view of Srinagar all around. An ancient and historical shrine. Peaceful and serene atmosphere. The lord Shiva shrine is divine. First you go uphill for 5.5 kms from road just opposite the dal lake and park your vehicle , no mobile phones or cameras are allowed here on. You need to climb @ 250 steps to the summit. Enjoy the wonderful view and the divine worship. While getting down take the separate route passing through the Shankracharya tapasya cave and get down @ 275 steps. If you are fit it is a must visit place

The elusive peace and great vibes found here
Jun 2021 • Couples
If you came for peace and quiet and beauty to Kashmir, this is it. The temple is mercifully devoid of the otherwise parasitic touts of the valley. It's ancient and the aura is magical. The 200 odd steps is not that challenging and the view from the top is worth it. Must go place

Srinagar top view from the temple
Jun 2021 • Family
It is an ancient temple. Other than place of worship, it has a breathtaking top view of the Srinagar city, the Dal lake and the Jhelum river flowing through the city.

Old temple standing on a hill in the heart of the city Srinagar. The Lake from atop looks fabulous in the evening.

Quiet ambience

It is one of the must visit places in Srinagar. The Temple is on the top of a Mountain, from where one can get entire view of Srinagar. The place is maintained by the Indian Army. Camera is not allowed there. Everyone has to entry his name and ph no with a valid ID proof before entire the premises. Main temple can be reached by climbing stairs, which may be difficult for the aged ones. The ambience of the temple is very calm and quiet.

Beautiful location

Must see place, not just about the sanctity of the place but also the view from top are the best. Quite a few steps to go atop but worth it. Carry some water with you, as it will get tiring.
