Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir)
An extremely popular destination for shooting Hindi films in the 1960's, one still remembers the gorgeous Dal Lake, the Mughal Gardens blooming with flowers or the colourful meadows of Pehalgam or Gulmarg. Film lovers have fond memories of Shammi Kapoor romancing the young and beautiful Sharmila Tagore as a young lass in Kashmir ki Kalli, followed by Shashi Kapoor and Nanda on a shikara in Jab Jab Phool Khile.
