Last month , in August I visited Kashmir with my Family on a family trip, we visited Pahalgram, Srinagar, Sonmarg , Gulmarg. In this i am going to tell my experience of Srinagar and tell you all about it's beauty.
We reached Srinagar on 2 August , in morning , we checked in our hotel and went for city tour,
First we visited Shankaracharya temple, it's a beautiful temple situated in Srinagar , no camera and phone are allowed , even we can't take sun glasses and belt. We have to climb 243 steps to reach temple, it is on top of a mountain range and is under protection of Indian Army. There's a checking a entrance by Army and they were very cooperative. When we reached temple we saw a magnificent view of Srinagar .
Than we visited some local parks of Srinagar , first we visited Mughal Garden Shalimar Bagh, beautiful place , complete green in view and have a special unique water stream, from this in summer cold water comes and in winter hot water, no one know what's the secret behind it. I drank some water it was so clean and sweet . The place was lovely and what a wonderful view we can see from it.
Than we visited Pariyo ka bhag , it's a mythological place, famous as people thought that ages ago Pari(Fairies) Visit this place, but now it's damaged and we can see top view of Srinagar from there.
Than we visited the most significant and beautiful location of Srinagar, for which it's mainly famous, One and only Dal Lake, . It is an urban lake, which is the second largest in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. It is integral to tourism and recreation in Kashmir and is named the "Lake of Flowers", "Jewel in the crown of Kashmir" or "Srinagar's Jewel". It cover mostly part of city and we did shikhara ride in it, at the time of sunset, it was the most memorial ride of my whole tour and the view was so amazing.
Dal Lake have many place to visit , but I was amazed when i found that it has it's own market in Lake. i really loved it.
