The “Floating Post Office, Dal Lake” – claimed to be the only such in the world – is built on an intricately carved maroon houseboat, now moored on the western edge of the Dal Lake.

The turquoise waters of Srinagar’s Dal Lake glisten in the spring sun, reflecting in between quaint ripples the grand Himalayan peaks that dominate the horizon. Here, amidst scores of docked houseboats and bright yellow shikaras ferrying tourists and locals alike, floats a most unexpected government centre – a post office.
