Photographer's Note

As the peak summer starts, Valley of Kashmir opens its gates for yearly ritual of Hindu devotees of paying obeisance at Amarnath cave, one of their most sacred places. And this gateway also give opportunity to devotees to become tourists by visiting beautiful Srinagar and its famous parks. A shot of such conversion taking place at Chashme Shahi.

Chashme Shahi is one of the famous Mughal gardens of Kashmir. The place originally derives its name from the spring which is supposedly discovered by the great female saint of Kashmir, Rupa Bhawani. The family name of Rupa Bhawani was 'Sahib' and the spring was originally called 'Chashme Sahibi'. Over the years the name got corrupted and today the place is known as Chashme Shahi (the Royal Spring). Later a garden was created around the spring by the Mughal Governor Ali Mardan. And today it is one of the three major Mughal Gardens in Srinagar.
