TOURIST PLACES AND SIGHTSEEING IN SRINAGAR
The vegetation and animals of Dachigam National Park are diverse. This beautiful location is a famous Hangul mansion (Kashmiri Stag). Musk deer, brown bears, Himalayan gray langurs, leopards, jungle cats, and other animals can be seen in the park. Binoculars will let you see golden and bearded vultures as they circle higher in the sky. Trout are among the park's other residents. There is a trout reservoir on the park grounds, but access to it requires special permission from the wildlife warden.
It houses the heritage and holy monuments of utmost importance, including the 'Parvati Temple,' 'Chatti Padshahi Gurudwara,' 'Makhdoom Sahib Shrine,' and 'Akhund Mullah Shah Shrine.' On top of this hill stands the only and most prominent identity marker of Srinagar, the Hari Parbat fort.'
The location was first fortified in 1590 by Mughal Emperor Akbar. He built an outside wall for the fort and planned to establish a new capital, 'Nager Nagor,' within it, but the project never got off the ground. Many people believe that the wall of Hari Parbat, which stretches over 5 kilometers, is the longest and oldest wall in the subcontinent.
