Photographer's Note

The Verinag spring in Anantanag about 80 kms away from Srinagar in Kashmir Valley is considered as the original source of river Jhelum. Situated at the foothills of Pir Panjal, this beautiful Verinag spring, with its deep blue water emanates from the base of a spur surrounded by pines and evergreen plants. The original shape of this spring was in the circular form of a kund. In early seventeenth century, Emperor Jahangir had changed the shape into the traditional Mughal octagonal(Another view in WS).

With a circumference of 80m enclosed by a brick wall the blue waters have a limpid clarity in which the verdant surroundings of pine trees are mirrored. Fish (posted in WS)swim in the cool depths. The lawns around are beautifully manicured -- dotted with flowers adding splashes of colour to this symphony of greens and browns. The calm and cool picturesque setting captivates the moods of the visitors.

One can also see a dog standing on the slab over the water!
