Kashmir

A few days ago i got an opportunity to make a tour to Kashmir. However the time was neither of summers or winters, it was more of a period of transition of autumns into winters.
Here i am sharing the photographs of my tour-de-Kashmir.

Kashmir Times

House boat

People decorate their homes with the bed covers and curtains having Kashmiri Embroidary.
Interiors of House boat. Carved out of Apricot Wood
Bukhara- It keeps the House Boat warm, without leaving Fumes of burning coal inside the room.
Kangadi- people burn coal inside it, and keep it near them or inside their phiran (kashmiri dress) to keep them warm!
