Streets of Srinagar
When you are at Srinagar, you should explore the streets to experience the local people as well as the historical architecture of the old buildings of the old city area of Srinagar. One of the best places to explore are the shop-houses and bazaars surrounding the Jama Masjid (biggest mosque in Srinagar). Here, you will see the local people going about their daily life at the shops, market etc.
Please note that because Srinagar is predominantly Muslims, you will see mostly men on the streets and women tend to be shy and often not wished to be photographed (you need to do it discretely). Other than that, the people of Srinagar are generally friendly.
