Srinagar is a city of surviving artifacts from the past which reflects onto the variation in the seasons. Come spring and the world of ice breathes life with air smelling of flowers that have just blossomed. This effect is at its peak in Summer and, in Autumn, the colors of self-contemplation are quite touchy. Winter is the time when the lakes in and around Srinagar are frozen. The Dal lake and Nagin lake dominate the scene with lovely houseboats through which one can explore Srinagar into the heart way past the channels and canals. You can find shops, cottages, work-places clustered all about the waterfront.
