It is a worth place to visit,and it was believed that Srinagar got its name due to SHRI shape of jhelem river,one can see it if carefully looked.we can also view scenery of srinagar,out there.But this view can't be captured in camera/phones as they were not allowed due to security reasons.

I took lot of pictures and this was the best place to see Dal lake. The ride from Dal lake to Shankarachaya temple takes only 35 mins by car. Best time to visit temple is in the mornings or on sunsets...
