Kashmir

The Golden Land

The northern state of India with the glorious history of robust culture, agriculture and trade. This bread house of Pre and Post Partitioned India came to be known as the golden land metaphorically for its wealth and literally because of the color of the soil and different grains giving it a sepia-tone landscape. The fertility of the land bloomed because of the five rivers

(Punj – Five and Ab – River) in the Punjab of Hindustan.
