Srinagar, the summer place of the government of the state of Jammu and Kashmir has long been one of the Indias most popular tourist destinations. In part, this has had to do with the multi-layered character of the city and its several attractions. And in part, this is because Srinagar assists as the base for the various places of interest and endless natural beauty that lie within Kashmir and for most areas, this ensures the access point. Up to Indias Independence in 1947, only the cream of the country traveled and holidayed in Kashmir.

Then, within a few short years, there was inflation in tourism, and this quickly became the backbone of the Srinagarâs economy. And thousands of visitants thronged to the valley of which the Mughal Emperor, Jehangir is said to have remarked in the seventeenth century. If there is a Heaven on earth, it is hereabouts; it is here, it is here. Srinagar is built on both sides of the river, Jhelum.

The old city has pretty a different character to the vast spaces of the parks and boulevards and provides expression to the phrase âcheek by jowlâ. This part of the town with narrow-minded streets and houses of exposed brick and elaborate timberwork â which includes half a dozen old bridges â is also the area where many artisans live and work; this introduces most, if not all of the cityâs copper craftsmen. Srinagar, which lies in a valley, transforms its character with every season.

It gets snow-laden winds reaching down from the hills fairly early in winter. The lakes practically freeze over and yet, some of the iconic houseboats tethered to the icy banks still function. The famous chinar trees and boulevards lined by poplars are stripped clean of their leaves, and before rain and snow firmly hush them, they make for a remarkably noisy carpet that rustles and crunches at every step.

The interior architecture and scaffolding of these magnificent trees now come up for display with proud trunks and high branches. People move about with 'kangris' with clay bowls and frames of wicker, which hold smoldering bits of charcoal under heavy 'phirans,' warm long tunics. In summer, Srinagar gets fairly hot, and temperatures can touch 38 degrees Celsius. The numerous parks become the venue for evening promenades.
