Srinagar

Located in the heart of the Kashmir Valley, which is called `Paradise on Earth`, Srinagar`s landscape is interspersed with greenery, lakes and hillocks. The city is spread out along the banks of the Jhelum River and is famous for its surrounding natural beauty and postcard tourist spots. The two parts of the city are connected by nine bridges. The Hari Parbat and the Shankar Acharya hills lie on either side of the city. 

 

Srinagar has a complex cultural fabric. The many historical constructions and places of worship are long-standing evidences of the historical unity of Srinagar despite the many diverse religious denominations and sects established in the valley since ancient times.

 

There are many Hindu temples that are more than 1000 years old as well as age-old mosques that are landmarks of Srinagar.  Also, numerous gurudwaras and monasteries can be found in many places throughout the city.

 

UNESCO has recognised some of these famous buildings of the city as heritage sites. Some of the famous temples are Shankaracharya Temple, Martand Sun Temple, Kheer Bhavani Temple, Pandrethan Temple, etc. The Hazratbal shrine, Dal Lake, Wullar Lake, etc. are some prominent attractions of the destination.

 

Srinagar is also a place for trekking and hiking. The most popular trekking route from Srinagar is to the sacred Amarnath cave. An excursion can be taken to Pahalgam and the Dachigam National Park.   more..
