Archaeologically a very important place in Srinagar, Burzahom is to the northwest of the beautiful Shalimar Gardens (5 km). Lying on the cradle of an ancient lake that is dried up now, Burzahom stands for 'place of birth' in local language and has the legacy of the first Neolithic site to be exposed in Jammu and Kashmir.

This excavation site brought out many valuable ancient artifacts supposed to be more than 5000 years old. The archaeologically important materials collected include arrowheads, animal skeletons, tools and pots from the Neolithic age. One can conveniently explore the place within 1 hour. Buses up to certain point are available but hiring a taxi is a good option to reach Burzahom.
