This is photo of a shop in Dal Lake taken on the sunny morning. Srinagar is also known as the city of Dal Lake. This lake is 6.4km long and 4km wide and is divided into three parts by man-made causeways. The western portion of the lake has an inlet. It is the deepest part of the lake. In the eastern part there are many Houseboats available for the tourists. The edges of the lake are covered with the groves of chinar, poplar and willow. There are gardens along the bank. The famous Nishat Bagh (Garden of Gladness) lies here. This garden was laid out by Asaf Khan, Nur Jahan's brother, in 1632.
