Hari Parbat is a hill overlooking Srinagar, the largest city and summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is the site of a Durrani fort, built in 1808. It has the Muslim Shrines of Khwaja Makhdoom Saheb and Akhund Mullah Shah on the Southem slope and Parvati temple on the westerm one. On the Southern side of the outer wall, there is a Gurdwara, which commemorates the visit of Guru Hargobind. The first fortifications on the site were constructed by the Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1590. He built an outer wall for the fort and planned a new capital called Nagarnagar to be built within the wall. That project was never compeletd. The present fort was  built in 1808 under the region of  Shuja shan Durrani. The hill is easily accessible from the Tourist  Reception Centre in Sinagar.
