Never miss this place

When I went with my family to visit Srinagar. I visited many places and Srinagar museum also, there I saw many rare species that I never saw before. Museum decorate such a beautiful method that I couldn't explain here. It's has many features added in this museum. If you go to Srinagar never miss to see this museum.
