Set amidst the mountain ranges of Pir Panjal and Himalayas, Srinagar is the northernmost city in India with over 1 million people. It is a popular hill station in the North and is visited by thousands of tourists for its natural environment, fresh air, expansive meadows, waterfronts and houseboats. The major waterbody in Srinagar is the river Jhelum and Dal and Anchar Lakes.
The city lying in the Kashmir Valley is famous for its unique culture, local cuisines, markets selling local handicrafts and the gracious people. Dal Lake is the most famous tourist spot in Srinagar for its boat rides (local boats called Shikaras). Shamilar Bagh and Nishat Bagh are two Mughal era gardens surrounding the lake along with the various markets and hotels. The gardens are vast complexes with fountains, pools and public parks. Chinar trees are something that are always associated with Srinagar as you can spot the beautiful trees almost in every corner.
Another Mughal era garden is the Chasme Shahi, which was built by a governor of Shah Jahan in the 17th century. The design of the garden is similar to that of Persian gardens. The main attraction of this garden are the water springs that flow through the different terraces of Kashmiri huts and finally into a fountain pool. Shankaracharya temple is another local attraction and is a Hindu pilgrimage site as it is one of the oldest temples, believed to be around since 200 BC. Another major attraction is the Pari Mahal, which is a seven terraced garden located at the top of Zabarwan mountain range. With so many local attractions for you to explore, Srinagar is surely a top tourist destination.
