Srinagar

Kashmiri Venice

The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Indira Gandhi Tulip Garden and Shalimar Bagh Mughal Garden. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nishat Garden and Durga Nag Temple. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Nigeen Lake, delve into the distant past at Pari Mahal, and admire the natural beauty at Shalimar Bagh.
