Every city with canals is compared to Venice, but Srinagar with its many lakes and narrow waterways definitely merits the comparison. It’s a water city.
In this video, we’ve tried to capture the serenity of the city’s waterscape and Mughal gardens as well as the frenzy of the old town. Get a glimpse of Srinagar’s famous wooden mosques, its markets and, of course, its handicrafts. Watch Kashmiri carpets being made, and take a peek at the beautifully painted papier mâché, items so typical of the region.
