Travel Tips for Srinagar

Architecture - Traditional Buildings

by victorwkf

Srinagar is a rather old city, and many of the old houses and architecture (mainly brownish in colour) can still be seen in the old town area of the city, including the areas surrounding the Jama Masjid (biggest mosque in the city). I was told by my guide that one of the key features of the buildings are the beautifully designed traditional windows of the houses.
