Welcome to New Golden Flower Heritage Houseboat
Houseboats are unique in the world to Kashmir valley. For the visitor to Srinagar, staying in a houseboat is an out of world experience. The houseboat came into being during the British Era, when the Maharaja of Kashmir refused them permission to build on dry land. The resourceful Britishers took to the water, living in ornate houseboats. The style has hardly changed from the first houseboat built by Mr. Conard in 1888 right down to boats being built today and since then the houseboat become mascots of Kashmir Tourism and gained a worldwide acclaim.
If your dreams include a sojourn on a houseboat in Kashmir, Kingfishers darting between the blossoming lotus and snowcapped mountains lining the horizon and each day concluded by a sunset of copper and gold, then imagine yourself on Nagin Lake.
