Overview

Hari Parbat Hill lies on the west of Dal Lake in Srinagar, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The Hari Parbat Fort is one of the ancient forts of Jammu and Kashmir which originated in the times of Mughal emperors.

The outer wall was constructed by Akbar and the Hari Parbat Fort along with Hari Parbat Fort fort travel, Hari Parbat historical, Hari Parbat Fort tourism etc in 1590 A.D. which cost around one crore and ten lakhs rupees. This large amount was taken from the Royal Treasury. Besides this, there were Indian artisans who came up with their skills in masonry work. There was an inscription in Persian language at the Kathi Darwaza. His intention was to lay down the foundation of a new capital within the fort and named it Nagar Nagor. One can view the ruins of some terraces even today on the side of Pokhiri Bal. This fort was constructed by Azim Khan at the hilltop. But the project was never accomplished. The present fort was constructed in the year 1808 during the reign of Shuja Shah Durrani, and hence this fort is also called as Durrani fort sometimes.
