In the 6th century, it was a part of the kingdom of Vikramaditya, the ruler of Ujjain. Srinagar was a part of the Mughal Empire in the medieval period. In 1814, it became a part of the Sikh empire, when Ranjit Singh defeated the Pathans. According to the treaty of Lahore in 1846, Gulab Singh became the independent ruler of Kashmir. The descendents of Gulab Singh ruled Kashmir under the British vigilance till 1947.

Various airlines fly to Srinagar from New Delhi, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Jammu and there are flights operating from Srinagar to Leh and back.

Some services are direct, while others operate via Chandigarh, Amritsar or Jammu. Flight time duration from Delhi on the direct flights is about an hour and ten minutes.

Srinagar's railhead is Jammu, which in turn is connected to all parts of the country, including Delhi, Kolkata, Pune, Mumbai and Kanyakumari. The distance is about 876-km from Delhi to Srinagar although almost everybody coming up from Delhi, or other Indian cities, by land will come through Jammu from where the buses run daily to Srinagar.

Srinagar is connected by an all weather road to Jammu, which in turn is connected to many parts of North India. One can catch buses from Delhi but people making the trip by road should take up the route via Chandigarh, Amritsar or from the Himachal Pradesh hill stations.
