Srinagar is also famous for its many lakes, the best known of which is the Dal Lake, home to houseboats, shikaras (canoe like skiffs), and floating markets. The town is also very well known for its numerous gardens, most of which were made many centuries ago. There are also many edifices of religious importance to be found in the city. Srinagar is in the land that truly embodies nature’s harmony between earth, sky, water, mountains, trees, and flowers, and is a destination that must be visited at least once in a lifetime.
