According to historians, the city of Srinagar was founded in 250 B.C. near Panderethen, some three miles south-east of the present city. The name Srinagar is alternatively translated as Shree Nagar or ‘The city’. Srinagar was described by its inhabitants as ‘the city of seven bridges’, and like many medieval river-based settlements, Srinagar developed on the banks of river Jhelum. The river not only served as the primary means of transportation, but the bazaars and workshops around it were the hubs of social, cultural and commercial activities.
