Situated in the north of India, on the border with Pakistan, the Kashmir Valley is a fertile region enclosed by high snow-capped mountains. In centuries past, the Mughal rulers of India retreated from the heat of the plains in summer, to the cool green heights of Kashmir, building some of the finest gardens and developing beautiful Islamic influenced artifacts.
