Traditional Mughal Gardens
One of the main elements of these gardens is running water and a pool that would reflect the magnificence of the sky and the garden. Different varieties of trees providing shade, fruit and flowers, a plethora of colorful wild grass, a mild zephyr and birds chirping all around made the gardens a very relaxing spot.

The numbers eight and nine, considered sacred by the Mughals, can be found in the octagonal pools of garden architecture.
The Mughal Gardens in Srinagar owe their magnificence and unparalleled heights of perfection to the Mughal Emperors Jahangir and Shah Jahan, both of whom had an unwavering affection for the region.

They don’t hv iternary/schedule of the trip. Travel agent is just worried about his tour bookings & passed on driver contact number. Driver is pathetic & pain he is very lazy and just flees money . My suggestion to search gud travel agent & enjoy the trip Dal lake / Shankaracharya temple / sonmarg glaciers
Trip to KashmirI have to say the decision of going ahead with Classic Holidays Kashmir through Travel Triangle turned out to be really wise & perfect. I and my wife were given proper hospitality, guidance and relaxed experience during the entire package. Pricing was really superb, communications before visits and during the visits by Classic Staff (Ms. Rabya), drive & assistance during visit to understand the locality and local requirements was good by our driver cum tourguide (Mr. Aqib). Mr. Mousim the owner of Classic Holidays took special care to ensure we had the best of services and hospitality. If we or anyone of my relatives/colleagues are going to Kashmir again, I shall surely recommend Classic Holidays Kashmir.
