We all like to preserve the traditions and the heritage of our land but who all amongst us work dedicatedly towards the wish and turn it into reality? Very few of us, right? Among those few, there is one old library in Kashmir who has secured its place in the Limca Book of Records with a collection of over 80,000 books present.

Gulshan Books, that is the division of Sheikh Mohammad Usman and Sons, is the only library located on a lake and it is aimed at preserving the heritage of the Kashmir valley providing a variety of books to read on the ancient and age old traditions of the place. Gulshan Books has a reading room and a café where people can sit, relax and enjoy reading the books while sipping a cup of coffee as long as they wish to. There are no restrictions to time.

A local author named Farman Ali, took great pride and expressed that this award is a great achievement for the people of Kashmir and that the objective of the library is now known to the world. The owner further emphasised that they have been preserving the works of local authors in the valley since 80-90 years. And that’s a decent figure!!

The library is run by the fifth generation of the person started this some 90 years ago. The library is a proof of the lineage the generations are taking forward with great love and care.
