Hari Parbhat


Distance 6.5 km from Lal Chowk and 4.5 km from T.R.C.

The fort was constructed by Ata Muhammad Khan, the Afghan governor of Kashmir, around 1770. This hill, also hari-parbatknown as the Koh-i-Maran, is near about 250 feet higher than the plain. In 1786, the European traveler Forster wrote that it was covered with gardens and orchards. It was probably the northern side of hill, the side between the Chhati Padshahi gurudwara and the Nageen Lake. This side has traditionally been a Badamwari. There are two gates, one is called Khathi darwaza in the east and second is in the west of the hill.
