As part of its continuing effort to strengthen bond with people in the Valley, Army has published a coffee table book on shrines of Kashmir.

The book titled 'Iconic Shrines of Kashmir' highlights the rich religious diversity and communal harmony in the Valley, a defence spokesman said.

"Various faiths have flourished in the Valley over different periods of history, thus giving rise to the unique secular culture of tolerance and acceptance personified by Sufi belief and culture," he said.

Kashmir has always been a land of varied interest and lured sages and religious icons of all faiths. The Chinar Corps has made an endeavour in form of this book to showcase some of the leading shrines of the Valley which exist even in inaccessible places, he said.

The book was released by State Agriculture Minister Ghulam Hassan Mir at a function held at Pattan in Baramulla district yesterday.
