Photographer's Note

Old Srinagar popularly known as Shehr-e-Khaas, is the largest and the most densely populated area of Srinagar. The city is located at an elevation of 1585 m above the mean sea level. The area is mostly located on the banks of Jhelum river about 5 km from city center. It is considered as the core point in the city as the first inhabitants of Srinagar lived there. The historical buildings and monuments found in the area reflect the design of old times. The residential homes are depicted to be constructed from late-19th century to early-20th century. The area was settled more than 2000 years ago in 3rd century BC by Raja Pravarsena. Source : wiki
