Reviving Shehar-e-Khaas

Downtown Srinagar, Kashmir

The overall form of the City of Srinagar started as an organic and linear development principally along River Jhelum and due to the cultural and strategic advantage of the Old City, Downtown Srinagar would be simply called Shehar-eKashmir - “The City of Kashmir”. The present day Old City is a collection of rich and variegated history. It survives today as one of the world’s most complete and intact cities of pre-modern vernacular and timber architecture.

Design Concept


The Project will be implemented in five comprehensive Phases; Phase I focuses on the Revival and Up gradation of Riverfront Zone to revitalize the connection of the community with the River and to initiate a New Tourism Brand. Phase II is based on Community Trust Building and betterment of local life through a Community Center and Facade Repair. Phase III emphasizes on the Awareness of Heritage via School Up-gradation and Heritage Interpretation Centre. Phase IV further promotes local markets and economic regeneration; finally resulting in a holistic Revitalization in Phase V.

Design Interventions

Other than the policy level proposals, a number of design solutions are proposed along both the edges of the River, to provide detailed specific interventions for each region.

The Cradle of the Valley

Dal Lake, Srinagar; Kashmir

Dal Lake in Srinagar is India an amalgamation of various cultural, ecological and historical layers; its morphology resulting from Dal Lake, Srinagar the interplay between J&K environmental cycles, cultural values and landuse practices. The pattern of growth and evolution manifested by the Lake is a response to the social and ecological conditions over the past years and hence is a consequence of unconscious design.

Scope of the Project


Issues faced by the Dal Lake

Ecological Issues - Dal lake has shrunk from 75 Sq. Kms (1880) to 10.5 sq.kms (2004)

Growth Map

- Anthropogenic pressures on Dal Lake has led to tremendous ecological imbalance due to excessive inputs of nutrients and pollutants by the human activities. - Siltation, due to excessive deforestation, in turn leading to soil erosion, has choked the number of active springs from 300+ to about half (embedded in the Lake and are the main inlets of fresh water).

Changing Land Use Pattern

-Lack of water flushing through outlets has led to nutrient enrichment and accumulation of free CO2 leading to frequent algal blooms. The canals, which formed major routes of outlet are being filled up to make ways for road networks causing stagnation of water. -Many species of plants and fish are at the verge of extinction. Present condition of the Oont Kadal (below) and Chunt Koel (right).

Socio-cultural Issues -Activity zones from the past such as Oont Kadal and Char Chinar, earlier used as popular tourist destination are decaying. -Land masses present within the Lake lie unused and isolated. -Poor condition of Hanjis. -Lack of social interaction spaces. -Unregulated and destructive land use patterns. -Harmful agricultural activities.

Section through the Lake showing how various social, cultural and ecological cycles are inter-dependent.


DESIGN SOLUTIONS Urban Structure Plan

Ecological Zone Regeneration

Empty land masses which were initially used as ‘Radhs’ or Floating Gardens shall be developed as an Ecological Sanctuary. It will lead to the revival of the lost flora and fauna as well as natural cycles of the water body. Regulated human interference: - A restricted walking pathway along the periphery; ‘Wetland Walk’. - Landscaping features such as Solar powered lighting, Caretakers Cottage and seating spaces shall be incorporated.


Ecological Zone Regeneration - Movement of Shikaras and low noise electric cabs only in certain permissible zones. - Indigenous plants and flowers to be grown on ‘radhs’ to enhance the peculiar biodiversity of the region. History and Heritage Zones

- Renewal of the Canal Journey by restoring the few existing canals (Chunth Kul) through proper facade treatment on vernacular lines and by generating the lost activities along these channels.

- The revival of the Char Chinar Island would be an asset to the development of tourism of the Dal Lake. Proposal of the open library and performance area would invite - Restoration of the ancient stone bridge, Oont more tourists and provide a means of expression for Kadal, and developing a walkway along its prominent visual axis. folk tradition and culture. A photography deck is provided, for a 360° view of the lake.

Rejuvenated Land Area

Landmasses to be Rejuvenated

Traditional activities on the inner land masses

Houseboats in Dal Lake follow a basic pattern and exist in VACANT LANDMASS clusters around an interior land mass; mostly left as a dead space and are connected by jetties. • Rejuvenating these land areas will help enrich the culture and experience of a Shikara Ride. • A few houseboats will be converted into museums, restaurants and exhibition centres to be accessed by the users. Culture Appreciation Zone

Re-Alignment of the Floating Market Re-Aligment of the otherwise randomly distributed market, along the peripheral back road, to minimise harmful commercial activities in the Lake. Appeal to declare Dal Lake Ecosystem a Biosphere Reserve
