Photographer: Bourne, Samuel

View of the Dal Lake near the Nazim Bagh, Srinagar from the 'Album of Indian Views' taken by Samuel Bourne in 1864. Srinagar on the Dal lake and river Jhelum is the capital of Kashmir. The Nasim Bagh on the banks of the Dal lake was built by Akbar (r.1556-1605) and is the earliest of the mughal gardens in Srinagar, of which little remains.
