Darbar to reopen in Srinagar on May 6 » Kashmir Media Service

Jammu, April 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, as part of the biannual ‘Darbar Move’ all offices, including the Governor House, closed in Jammu and will reopen in the summer capital Srinagar on May 6.

The ‘darbar move’ was started by the then Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1872 to escape the extreme heat during summers in Jammu and biting cold of winters in Srinagar.

The practice continued even after the ouster of Maharaja Hari Singh as Kashmir ruler and illegal occupation of the territory by India in 1947.
