Heavenly Vistas of Kashmir

Written By: Manoj

Kashmir is considered to be the 'Heaven on Earth' with its immense treasure of natural beauty. Located in the north-west region of India, the valley is nestled amid the mighty Himalayas and the Pir Panjal mountain range.

According to local folklore, the place came into existence after a popular Hindu Sage named Kashyap shrunk a lake where Brahmins resided exposing the land underneath.

Here is a pictorial guide of this beautiful valley town.
