Description
The present volume is undoubtedly one of the most interesting books ever written on Kashmir as it gives an eye-witness account of Kashmir, including Ladakh, as it existed a century back. The author, an indefatigable missionary and school teacher, arrived in India from England in 1891 to assist Rev J H Knowles, the Headmaster of Kashmir Mission School, Srinagar, which came into being a decade earlier. He gives an interesting account of the lakes, valleys and towns of Kashmir. The valley had only four places worthy of the name of towns: Srinagar, Baramulla, Sopore and Islamabad. In 1890 Srinagar had a population of 1,30,000. Srinagar means “the city of wealth”. It was most picturesque town stretching for three miles on both sides of the River Jhelum. Baramulla is in the North-West where the River Jhelum leaves the valley through a deep gorge and thence becomes a foaming torrent as it drops 3000 feet to the plain of India.
