Children play in the last remaining daylight at Shah-e-Hamdan mosque.

The end of the each day at this uniquely gorgeous wooden mosque sees the same batch of youngsters yucking it up like it's a school playground. Overall, the atmosphere in the courtyard is warm and the always friendly Kashmiris, particularly the youths, are forever curious to interact with foreigners.

Another round of archived photos (on the weekends) has returned. The focus for the past several weeks has centered around a batch of Kashmir photos I'd accidentally misplaced and only recently rediscovered.

Pigeons are scared off in the courtyard of Shah-e-Hamdan mosque. - Srinagar, Kashmir, India - Daily Travel Photos

Pigeons fly away from the courtyard of Shah-e-Hamdan mosque.

All day long, these jittery pigeons stir around the mosque, primarily enticed by the breadcrumbs and seeds disseminated by local Kashmiris. When one bird gets startled, they all flee en masse leaving your correspondent reaching for anything to cover my head from a filthy assault from the sky.

Stay tuned for another set of archived photos tomorrow.
