Over 15km around, Dal Lake is Srinagar's jewel, a vast sheet of water reflecting the carved wooden balconies of the houseboats and the misty peaks of the Pir Panjal mountains. Flotillas of gaily painted shikaras (gondola-like taxi boats) skiff around the lake, transporting goods to market, children to school and travellers to delightful houseboats inspired by originals from the Raj era.
Of all Srinagar's Mughal gardens, Nishat Bagh is arguably the most appealing, with terracing that's steeper than that of better known Shalimar Bagh and fragrant blooming magnolias that frame a lovely lake panorama. It's on the lakeside drive, 7.5km from Nehru Park.
On top of thickly forested Shankaracharya Hill, this small Shiva temple is built from hefty blocks of visibly ancient grey stone. Previously known as Takht-i-Sulaiman (Throne of Solomon), it’s now named for a sage who reached enlightenment here in AD 750, but signs date the octagonal structure as 5th century and the site is even older. Some claim, very controversially, that a previous temple here was once renovated by Jesus and St Thomas.
Floating Vegetable Market
In the maze of channels at the edge of Dal Lake, the dawn vegetable market is an increasingly popular tourist sight, though vendors flogging souvenirs, saffron and chocolates can outnumber the vegetable boats. By 7am it's all over. Two-hour round trips from Nehru Park are offered by small boat (₹600) and shikara (gondola-like boat; ₹900).
