Travel Tips for Srinagar

Hari Parbat Fort & Other Attractions at Srinagar

by victorwkf

The Mughal emperor's fort crowns the top of Hari Parbat Hill, which is a landmark which rises above the city of Srinagar. The fort was later developed in 18th century by an Afghan governor, Ata Mohammad Khan. The hill is considered sacred to the Hindus due to the presence of temple of Sharika, which is believed to be a form of goddess Durga or Shakti. The wall around the hill was built by Akbar in 1592-98 AD. The hill is surrounded by almond orchards, which make a lovely sight during April when the trees blossom, heralding the advent of spring in Kashmir. On the southern side of the Hari Parbat Hill is the historic shrine of Makhdoom Sahib, which is visited by people of all faiths.

Other than the previous tips and this tip, there are other historical attractions at Srinagar and surrounding areas which you might want to visit when you are there (if you have a few days to spare). They are as follows:

- Shankaracharya Temple
- Khanqah of Shah Hamadan
- Chhatti Padshahi Gurudwara
- Martand
- Kheer Bhawani
- Awantipur

"Three days in Kashmir"

i was shooting a news feature for CBN/ FOX news
some call the kashmir 'one of the most dangerous place in the world'', perhaps it is, but there is no doubting the beauty of this amazing place

a picture of peace... unless you look carefully. -thats one of many bunkers with a light machine-gun (LMG) that overlooking the beautiful Dal lake. A sight that i could see only a few meters outside my room at the Centaur hotel. the head of kashmirs para military force was staying at the same hotel, and therefore it can also be a 'legitimate target'.

sunset across the Dal lake

Another 'Shikara' on the Dal lake

A 'shikara' on the jhelum river

arms and ammo captured by the para military (CRPF) bieng displayed for us to shoot...(with a camera!)

the 'martyrs graveyard'
