Srinagar – The winter wonderland welcomes you to explore its beauty

Snow-capped mountains with roads beautifully lined up by majestic maple trees and the Dal Lake with a calm and snowy placid face is the first thing that comes to mind when we think about Srinagar, the summer city of Jammu and Kashmir. This city has so many things to share with all. It’s true that all of them are not so pleasant but still the divine smile of the Kashmiri people out in this city will make you fall in love with Srinagar for sure. Even Srinagar and its citizens are also popular for the great hospitality. If you are planning for Srinagar tour then it is important for you to know about the places to see in Srinagar.

  • Dal Lake: The beauty of the Dal Lake has its own secrets to whisper and share with you when you sail on the picturesque water of this lake in a Shikara. It is one of the celebrated lakes of the city and it is home to beautifully crafted and decorated houseboats, floating gardens and eye-catching Shikara. At the backdrop of this lake is Pir Panjal mountain range which enhances the beauty of the lake making it picture perfect. Be there during morning hours to explore the colorful floating market.
  • Mughal garden: To get a closer view of the beauty of Srinagar to ensure you pay a visit to famous Mughal Gardens of Srinagar. Shalimar, Nishat and Chashm-e-Shahi, all 3 together form the Mughal Garden which is worth visiting. It is popular more for its enriched history than architectural beauty. It was during the 17th century period when Shalimar Bagh (garden) was constructed and it was the summer residence as well as the royal court. The architectural layout of Shalimar and Nishat Bagh resembles the look of Persian gardens having a source of water right at the center with four individual streams coming from it. Chashm-e-Shahi Bagh is a freshwater spring with exceptional medicinal value.
  • Hazratbal Mosque: The silvery white color of the Hazratbal Mosque is very eye-catching and it houses the Prophet’s hair. It is located close to the Dal Lake and is the solo domed mosque in the city. The scenic beauty of this mosque makes it worth visiting. Entry for Women is restricted to the first section of this mosque. The Hazratbal Mosque offers a divine look to Srinagar. When you take a walk down the mosque corridors of this sanctum, you will be impressed with the beauty of the intricate effect of the Persian as well as Iranian architectural influences.

Apart from the above 3 places of visit in  Srinagar sightseeing tour you can also explore Wular Lake, Manasbal Lake, Gulmarg, Apple Orchard, Nagin Lake, Shankaracharya Mandir, Jama Masjid, Pahalgam, Sonmarg and Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden.
