Sunset at Dal Lake

Dal Lake is a lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of the northernmost Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The urban lake is nicknamed the "Jewel in the crown of Kashmir". This wooden boat is called "shikara" and only seen in this region of India. Like the Venetian gondolas, this "shikira" is a cultural symbol of Kashmir.
