Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, is situated on the banks of river Jhelum. The nature has bestowed upon it all its magnificences, which makes it one amongst the most beautiful places of India. The city is also known as the 'Venice of the East' and is home to two popular lakes, namely Dal Lake and Nagin Lake.
The popular Srinagar tourist places include Mughal gardens, shrines and monuments. All these attractions depict city's history that dates back to the 3rd century. One of the famous local attractions is Hazratbal Mosque which gets its name from 'Hazrat', an Arabi word which means 'Holy'. A fact to know about this shrine is that the women's entry is restricted only to the first part of the shrine.
