Ancient Temple on the Takht Hill. B.C. 200. Kashmir
The Shankaracharya Temple on the Takht Hill is a famous landmark of Srinagar
The Shankaracharya Temple dates to the 4th century BCE and is one of the most famous examples of early Kashmiri temple architecture. It sits on what is now called the Takht-e-Suleiman Hill overlooking Srinagar.
"Did you climb up the Takht i Suliman? I did this time and had such a fine view. It was not such a hard climb either," writes Auntie Carrie to Miss Ruth E. Clark in this card sent in 1910.
