Srinagar’s floating vegetable market

JK Bank


In the backwaters of Srinagar’s Dal Lake, a floating vegetable market adds to the pristine beauty of this city. Several boats, locally called as Shikaras, are filled with different kinds of vegetables, grown by the residents of these areas. They float at morning to sell their produce. But it doesn’t only remain a market, like any other, it also adds color and music to this otherwise quiet lake. Shahid Tantray brings these images from one such morning.
