One of the best Mughal monuments is the Shalimar Bagh in Srinagar. Emperor Jahangir built it in 1619. Through a channel, the garden is linked to the northeast of Dal lake.
Musical Fountain and Laser Show
Another attraction on Srinagar's plate is the Musical Fountain and Laser Show. The show runs adjacent to SKICC Boulevard every day, and tickets are available at the site. The show timings are 08:00 to 08:30 pm.
Many indigenous spices are grown here, so the flavours would fill your mouth with water every time you see it. You will also get all kinds of North and South Indian cuisine, but eat Kashmiri dishes in Kashmir. There are so many food options in Srinagar, but these are three options for vegetarian and non-vegetarians:
Wazwan in itself is a multi-course meal. Almost all dishes are meat-based. It is a combination of 36 dishes that includes meat dishes, rice, and others.
Must Try in Wazwan: Gushtaba, Rogan Josh, Riste, Doudha Ras, waza Kokur, Tabakh Maaz, Dhaniwal Korma, Aab Gosh, Tabakh Maaz, Koshur Kabab, Naate Yakhin.
Ladyar Chaman (Indian Cheese in Turmeric), Veth chaman (Indian Cheese, cooked in oil and Kashmiri spices), Dama olu (Potato), Nadru yakhni (Lotus Stem), Hak (with nadru/vangan), Nadru palak.
Fill your mornings and evenings with Kahwah tea and noon-chai with some bakery biscuits and Kabab on the side.
Shopping in Srinagar is a must. I would advise you to come almost empty-handed and go back stuffed. Warm clothes, ponchu, and shawls come in a wide range.
Coming to the markets where you will get good clothes at affordable prices, here is the list:
1. Dal Lake Street Market
2. Sunday Market
3. Budshah Chowk
4. Polo View Market
5. Raghunath Bazaar
If you want to see colours, experience happiness, and witness the lifeline flowing on the Dal Lake, you must come between April to October. You will come bewildered and leave speechless.
You don’t go to Srinagar every day. If you have more time to spare, cover these places as well and tick some checkboxes from list:
