Srinagar: Summer Capital
previous
 

The tomb of Kashmir’s greatest king, Zain-ul-ab-u-din (also known as Budshah) is near the fourth bridge, Zaina Kadal. Budshah, who succeeded to the throne in 1417 A.D., was known for his tolerance towards Hindus. His fifty-year rule is still considered Kashmir’s happiest period, for he patronized the fine arts. Around his tomb the hurried graves of martyrs have not stopped multiplying.
