Srinagar, the capital city of the state of Jammu & Kashmir, is a prominent centre of tourism in India. On the banks of the Jhelum River, Srinagar is located in the heart of the Kashmir Valley. Srinagar is set against the backdrop of mesmerizingly beautiful waterways. The quaint city of Srinagar remains abuzz with a whirl of activities. Srinagar charmed the Mughal rulers, particularly Jahangir & Shah Jahan. They built several gardens of typical Mughal –style at short distances from capital. The city is also famous for barges and lakes. It is home to two most beautiful lakes - Dal Lake and Nagin Lake. Among the major attractions of the city is spring-fed Dal Lake and its floating gardens, shikaras and houseboats. Srinagar is also known as Kashmiri Venice. This place is very famous for its traditional crafts and dried fruit.

The very term Srinagar, suggests the character of the city—the City Beautiful & Prosperous. The original city was founded by Asoka about 2,260 years ago. The present city was the making of King Pravarasena. The city has grown on the banks of the river Jhelum, spanned by nine bridges. On the edge of the city is the Dal Lake, 8 km. long and 4 km. wide. A novel experience awaiting the visitors is their opportunity to live in the houseboats, some of which are quite sophisticated with all the modern amenities. Apart from the Dal Lake, they are available in the river Jhelum and the Nagin Lake. Generally the houseboats have two living rooms and at least two bedrooms with attached bathrooms and decks for sunbathing. They are provided with hot and cold running water, electricity, crockery, household appliances and radio & TV sets. Each houseboat has a paddle boat for practical and free movement between the houseboat and the shore, and a kitchen-boat that also serves as the staff quarters.

A voyage along the river---the city opening up on both sides---is no less exciting. Some of the best showrooms of art objects, handicrafts and other products are situated on the river-bank. It takes about three days to see Srinagar and the significant spots around it in the following sequence: Dal Lake (a voyage through in a kind of canoe), Chashma Shahi, Nishat Bash, Shalimar Bagh, Harwan, Hari Parbat Fort, Hazratbal, Jami Masjid and Shankaracharya Temple.
