The Dal Lake is a famous lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir. The lake itself is connected to a number of other lakes of the Kashmir valley. It is well known for its approximately 500 Victorian-era wooden houseboats, originally built as vacation homes for landless British administrators during the Raj.
