The present location of Srinagar carries an interesting anecdote. It is said that when Praverasena 11, in early part of 6th century, returned from a victorious expedition, he decided to establish a new capital which would bear his name. He was then residing at Panderethan, the old capital built in 3rd century BC. The king went out at night in order to ascertain the proper site and the auspicious time for founding the new city.
