Formalities at Srinagar Airport
At Srinagar airport we had to give our details like Name,Phone numbers,where we were coming from,local staying address etc.After this we were given a sealed testing kit and samples for testing were collected from our noses at the temporary booth erected at the airport itself.We were allowed to go out and we were told that we would receive a message in 10 minutes only if we tested positive.Thankfully,we never received a message.
Places to see/Things to Do/Detailed Itinerary
After checking in at the hotel and after having some meal we started our sight seeing at around 12.30pm.We had already booked a cab for the three days at the Airport.
1)Our first destination was the Shankaracharya temple.This temple was high up on a hill and our cab drove us up along the twisted roads to the hilltop.The views of the Dal lake and the valley below was beautiful!At the hilltop,we had to climb around 200 steps to reach the ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.The temple was carved out of huge blocks of stones and the ambience was very peaceful.However,No camera or mobile was allowed in the premises and we had to go through security checking at the entrance.
