Kashmir: The Land Of Beauty

The Kashmir valley is blooming again this season, not just with flowers but with visitors.

Srinagar- the abode of the god, the heaven on the earth- is being visited by the travellers after a gap of few years, with militancy and terrorism on the all time low.

There is a popular saying in the local language, “Gar bar-ru-e-zamin ast; hamin ast, hamin ast, hamin asto”. This means – if there is a paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here.
