Do You Know About India’s Floating Post Office And Where Its Located?

Standing on a huge houseboat, the post office also includes a philately museum and a shop that sells postage stamps among other things.

That India has the most widely distributed postal network and the largest number of post offices in the world is a known fact. But did you know about India’s floating post office? Yes it’s true!

Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most popular and beautiful destinations in India. It is famous among tourists and has several attraction spots.

One of its major attractions is the Dal Lake which is known for its natural beauty, its location between mountains, and its lovely weather and ambiance. But another jewel to its crown is India’s first floating post office!  which was inaugurated by former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in August 2011.

Since then, it has been attracting tourists from all across the country. While it is a boon to the state’s tourism, the post office is also looked at as a tribute to the beautiful Dal lake.

Standing on a huge houseboat, the post office also includes a philately museum and a shop that sells postage stamps among other things. These include picture postcards, greeting cards, local souvenir items, stationery and several books on Kashmir. Other services at the post office allow tourists to call and email their friends all across the world.
