2 years ago I visit Kashmir, India. Same as Switzerland, Norway, Canadian Andes and Russia; Kashmir is also a beautiful land and a attraction for tourists. This is a very beautiful place which is known for its wonderful natural charm and beauty which is just like a heaven. When I went to Kashmir I came to know that it is really a Heaven on this earth and great blessing of Almighty Allah. Kashmir has everything to offer to its visitors whether it can be regarding winter sports, trekking activities, river water rafting, golf, heritage tourism, fresh water lakes, tempting wetlands, beautiful gardens and parks. That is why Kashmir is also known as the “Heaven on the Earth” or the Paradise on the Earth. I want to suggest to all tourists they must visit Kashmir because its amazing.


Kashmir is the northernmost geographical region of South Asia. Until the mid-19th century, the term "Kashmir" denoted only the valley between the Great Himalayasand the Pir Panjal mountain range. Today, it denotes a larger area that includes the Indian-administered territory of Jammu and Kashmir (subdivided into JammuKashmir, and Ladakh divisions), the Pakistani-administered territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, and Chinese-administered territories of Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram Tract.

In the first half of the 1st millennium, the Kashmir region became an important centre of Hindusim and later of Buddhism; later still, in the ninth century, Kashmir Shaivismarose. In 1339, Shah Mir became the first Muslim ruler of Kashmir, inaugurating the Salatin-i-Kashmir or Swati dynasty. For the next five centuries, Muslim monarchs ruled Kashmir, including the Mughals, who ruled from 1586 until 1751, and the Afghan Durrani Empire, which ruled from 1751 until 1820. That year, the Sikhs, under Ranjit Singh, annexed Kashmir. In 1846, after the Sikh defeat in the First Anglo-Sikh War, and upon the purchase of the region from the British under the Treaty of Amritsar, the Raja of Jammu, Gulab Singh, became the new ruler of Kashmir. The rule of his descendants, under the paramountcy (or tutelage) of the British Crown, lasted until 1947, when the former princely state of the British Indian Empire became a disputed territory, now administered by three countries: India, Pakistan, and the People's Republic of China.

The Sanskrit word for Kashmir was कश्मीर (káśmīra) The Nilamata Puranadescribes the Valley's origin from the waters, a lake called Sati-saras.  A popular local etymology of Kashmira is that it is land desiccated from water. 
An alternative etymology concerns the sage Kashyapa, who is believed to have settled people in this land. Accordingly, Kashmir is derived from either Kashyapa Mir(the lake of Kashyapa) or Kashyapa Meru (the mountain of Kashyapa).
The Ancient Greeks called it as Kasperia. Kashyapa-pura, which has been identified with Kaspapyros of Hecataeus (apud Stephanus of Byzantium) and Kaspatyros of Herodotus (3.102, 4.44). Kashmir is also believed to be the country meant by Ptolemy's Kaspeiria. Cashmere is an archaic spelling of present-Kashmir, and in some countries it is still spelled this way.
