The Palace of Fairies
The garden of
Pari Mahal is located at the top of the Zabarwan Hills, which provides a view of the whole city. Pari Mahal is also known as the Palace of Fairies. This garden was made for the Mughal prince Dara Shikoh,
for learning astrology.
The garden is divided into seven terraces from where the view of the whole area is visible. The beautiful Tulip garden, the Botanical Garden, the hilltops of Zabarwan, the helipads are visible from the top terrace of Pari Mahal.
This place gives a different feel rather than the usual gardens. The palace provides
picture-perfect views. The vloggers and shutterbugs should not miss this place at any cost.
The ancient architecture of this garden is purely Islamic based but the gardens are manicured very well. The upper-most terrace consists of the ruins of a reservoir. The second terrace has a vast reservoir present in the middle of the garden but presently doesn’t have any water supplies. The fifth terrace has a wall with pigeon holes.
The weather remains moderate throughout the day in summers. The best time to visit here is in April-September. The package booked under the
Duke Kashmir Travels provide hotels near the Mughal Garden area.
