The Jammu and Kashmir government on 28 July signed a pact with the JSW Foundation to restore and conserve Shalimar and Nishat Gardens in Srinagar.

Speaking on the occasion, the lieutenant governor termed the signing of MoU as a new beginning in the conservation of the historic sites which are the hallmarks of J&K’s rich cultural heritage legacy. The government is giving much-needed impetus to integrate the promotion of cultural heritage in the UT’s development plan in order to connect the people from across the world with the glorious history of J&K, he added.
