Hari Parbat Fort, Srinagar

Hari Parbat Fort Overview

Built during the reign of Akbar, this Mughal fort lies to the west of the Dal Lake and based on top of the Sharika Hill. It consists of a type of basaltic rock favourable to the growth of almond trees. The Hari Parbat Hill occupies more or less a central position in the valley. The whole of the hill-every stone and every dust particle of it-is sacred to the Hindus. A Parvati temple on the western slope and the Muslim shrines of Khwaja Makhdoom Sahib and Akhund Mullah Shah on the southern slope form the other attractions. Presently the fort is occupied by the army, you need to obtain the entry permit from the Archaeological Department's office at Lal Mandi in Srinagar.
