Kashmir - Another Switzerland

Kashmir, a paradise nestled in the grand Himalayas to the north of Pakistan, bordering China and India. One of the most scenic lands. It is really a paradise on Earth. It has a wealth of natural beauty tucked high away in India's north, with unique cuisine and local craftsmanship.

Historical value and are visited by all religion

The place has historical value. It was established a long time back. I was not in a position to ascertain the dates. The place is peaceful. Muslims offer their prayers here. Even people from other religion go and pay their respect. It is said that if you tie a knot and seek something, your wish will be granted. People of all religion visit this place. Ladies at certain point are not allowed and both ladies/gents are required to cover their heads.
