India has the largest number of post offices in the world but #DidYouKnow that there is a floating post office in Srinagar and it is one-of-a-kind in the entire world? How cool is that, right? And it is only 3.9 km away from the 22 Enclave by Evoke Lifestyle Hotel.
Srinagar (Jammu & Kashmir) is one of the most popular and beautiful destinations in India also known as the Paradise on Earth. It is very famous amongst the tourists and has several beautiful attractions. Dal Lake is known for its natural beauty, it is located between mountains, and its lovely weather and ambience glad the tourists. But another jewel to its crown is the India's first and only Floating Post Office.
This floating post office was launched by former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in August 2011. Since then, it has been attracting tourists from all over the world. The post office enhances the beauty of the Dal lake. Standing on a huge house boat, the post office also includes a philately museum and a shop that sells postage stamps, picture post cards, greeting cards, local souvenir items, stationary and several books on Kashmir. Here tourists can also avail the facilities of call and email to their friends and family all across the world.
The Dal Lake conjures images of beautiful shikaras and houseboats floating against the backdrop of snow-clad mountains. This lovely floating post office just adds more to its magnificence!
