This chapter discusses the scenic beauties throughout India. The town of Jammu has an attractive setting with the old, impressive Bahu Fort overlooking the Tawi River. At Pampore, the fields turn purple under the saffron crop. A great part of the magic of Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir, is its flavor of central Asia. Staying on one of the houseboats is an experience that should not be missed. Between the Zaina Kadal and Ali Kadal is the tomb of a popular ruler called Badshah. The massive walls that guard Hari Parbat Fort, were begun in the reign of Emperor Akbar.
