Since then, it has been attracting tourists from all across the country. While it is a boon to the state’s tourism, the post office is also looked like a tribute to the beautiful Dal lake. Standing on a huge houseboat, the post office also includes a philately museum and a shop that sells postage stamps among other things. These include picture postcards, greeting cards, local souvenir items, stationery and several books on Kashmir. Other services at the post office allow tourists to call and email their friends all across the world.
Another special feature of this post office is that the letters that are posted here carry a special design with pictures of scintillating landscapes of the Dal Lake and other Srinagar attractions. The museum in the post office showcases its history and several fascinating postage stamps.
The Dal Lake which is known as one of the most beautiful lakes in India conjures images of beautiful shikaras and houseboats floating against the backdrop of snow-clad mountains. This lovely floating post office just adds more to its gorgeousness!
