Hari Parbat is a hill located about 5 km from the city of Srinagar. It is believed to have grown out of pebble once thrown by Goddess Parvati. It was the site of a number of temples in the past but the Islamic invaders destroyed many of them out of religious intolerance. On the southern slop of the hill is located Sharika Devi Temple, dedicated to goddess Durga, having 18 hands. Regarded as a Shaktipeeth, Devi Sharika is also known as Jagadambika Sharika Bhagawati and highly revered by the Kashmiri Pandits. Hari Parbat is also called Pradyumna Peeth. It is also a revered site of the Sikh religion. Gurudwara Chatti Patshahi is also situated on the southern slope of the hill.

Upon Hari Parbat stands a fort built by Atta Mohammed Khan, an Afghan ruler of 18th century. The wall around the hill was built by Akbar towards the close of the 16th century but the completion of the Hari Parbat Fort was done by Shuja Shah Durrani in 1808. There are almond orchards around it. When in bloom they present a magnificent sight in spring. Permission to visit the fort can be had from the Director of Tourism, Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar. Since 2014, Hari Parbat Fort has been opened for visitors.
