We might know that India has the largest number of Post offices in the world. But today I came across a floating post office in India. How many of you know about this floating post office? It is built on a huge houseboat on Dal Lake in Srinagar. Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most beautiful and popular destination in India. It is famous among tourists and has several attractions as well, Dal Lake being one of them. The floating post office is first of its kind in the country. To make it more innovative, the place also has a philately museum and a shop that sells postage stamps and other products. Moreover, the letter posted from here carries a special design with pictures of coruscating landscapes of the Dal Lake and Srinagar city. The pictures will reach wherever the letter will be posted and will help promote Kashmir as a tourist destination across the world. I hope you enjoyed reading it. Have a good day

Hello Bhagyashree. Wow. That sounds quite practical and interesting. I can't say I have ever been very familiar with that mode of mail delivery. Doing a little snail mail sail. He he he.
