The Kashmir tour is always special for me. Srinagar is one of the most beautiful places in Kashmir. It’s took minimum 2 to 3 days to explore the beauty of Srinagar.
The main attraction of Srinagar is Dal Lake. To ride the Shikara (a kind of boat by which one’s can travel on Dal Lake) is the best experience of everyone life. We had spent here almost 3 hours and the scenic beauty of Srinagar was mesmerizing us.
But the one most important think is the booking price of shikara is not stable so must bargaining at the time of booking. There has a vegetable market on the Dal Lake and that is beautiful. Also there has a garden called Nehru Garden and must visit that garden.
KHIR BHAVANI TEMPLE:
This temple is 14 km far away from Srinagar. It is the most important temple for the followers of Historical Vedic Religion in Kashmir, known as the Kashmiri ‘Pandits’. There has a Chinar tree beside this temple. Whole temple made off with stones. In evening we went that place.
In Kashmir Batab Valley is one of the beautiful places. Beside the river of Lidder this valley is situated. The famous movie Batad had shot here, so that reason this place is very famous.
There are lots of fountains and flower in this park; this is a pleasant and beautiful place. Everyone spent 2 hours easily in that place. The natural beauty of that place exquisite us.
This is also a famous place in Srinagar. This garden is very much well maintained and one does can spend a lot of time in that place. Lots of Hindi movies shooting had done here. Lots of flowers are also increase the beauty of this garden.
Mughal Gardens will give you feel of Mughal era with its fountains and different flowers.The garden has some historical stories and some of the stories had written on the stones which are placed on the garden.
This is also look like same as Mughal garden. The structure of that place is same. This is a beautiful place. Lots of flowers and fountains had increase the beauty of that place. There are lots of fairy tales about that place.
This is basically a holy place. The architecture of that place is excellent. The location of this place is opposite the Nishant Bagh and beside the Dal Lake. The place is very peaceful. The mind feels very light if one does spend a quality time in that place.
All over the Kashmir tour is memorable for us.
