Famous Dal Lake and other water bodies froze partially as Srinagar city, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, witnessed the coldest night of this winter with mercury plunging to minus 5.6 degrees Celsius.

Dal Lake located in the heart of the city was partially frozen early Saturday morning as cold wave conditions intensified with mercury plunging nearly 1.5 degrees to settle at the season’s lowest minimum temperature so far.

Dal dwellers, using their oars, were seen breaking the layer of ice at several places to make way for their shikaras to reach the banks of the lake.

While the freezing cold added to the woes of the residents, the tourists were happy to witness it.
