Srinagar is located in the heart of the Kashmir valley, and spreads on both sides of the river Jhelum. It is the state capital. Srinagar is as much imagination as it is fact, for every season offers new vistas to this city of great antiquity. The valley of Kashmir, in which Srinagar is located, is also referred to as being a heaven on earth. The Mughal emperor Jahangir was so captivated by the beauty of this valley that he exclaimed "Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin asto" (If there is a heaven on earth, it's here, it's here, it's here). There are a number of tourist places in and around Srinagar. The city is very famous for its canals, houseboats and the Mughal Gardens.
Srinagar is called the city of lakes. Its lakes are
the reason why the city receives so many tourist. The
lakes enhance its picturesque setting, while the changing play of the seasons
and the salubrious climate ensures that the city is equally attractive to
visitors around the year.
