Situated a picturesque kawera 20 kms from Srinagar city. One of the magnificent capitals of Kashmir during 12 century ruled by king Lalitaditya knows as "Paraspur" was starched across 5 kms. The present view of the ruins of that ancient capital bears the testimony of its glory and ancient architecture. although much is not known about this capital,but its remarkable, that despite located at a plateau about 300 ft above the present highway with little means of transportation , the capital enjoyed a sufficient supply of drinking water. in excavations some Buddhist structures have been discovered, which were during king Ashokas time followed by an international Buddhist meet at Harwan Srinagar and is believed that the out come of deliberations in that conference were inscribed on copper plates and it is still believed that those are buried too deep some where near these monuments.The ruins left behind are a combination of Buddhist and Hindu architecture of those times. Even today when the set up has become too noisy,the place is still very calm & quiet. The area was connected to the rest of the world during 1984-1985 with the proper motor able road 2 kms from national highway and the place become accessible to the visitors, historians researchers and tourists etc.

Parihaspora Kashmir was under the influence of Buddhism for almost a thousand years. That is why we find the remains of Buddhist influence even today. Most of the Viharas about which Kalhana has given details have not been located so far. But it is certain that they are spread over the whole of Kashmir valley. There are certain Viharas whose locations have been pinpointed. Some of them are- Jalora Vihara at Zalur Zainageer (Sopore in Baramulla district), Vitastatra is todays Vyathavotur in Anantnag district. King Ashoka (different from the great King Ashoka of Maurya dynasty) had built a stupa in todays Budgam; queen Shukdevi had built a Vihara inSrinagar at a place named Nadvana . Vihara is not seen today, but the word Nadvana got changed into Narvora which is one of the oldest parts of old Srinagar City. Huang Suang has written about a Jainder Vihara near Srinagar City, which had a huge Buddha idol in it. Huang Suang had stayed in this Vihara, but its place is still a matter of dispute. Besides these, there are many places in Kashmir which remind us of Buddhism and its influence on Kashmir like Parihaspora , Anderkut , Ahen (Sumbal), Khandhbhawan (Srinagar), Rattani Pura , Harwan , Raithan , etc
