Houseboats that are now the signature of the Dal Lake were introduced accidentally to Kashmir. Members of the Indian Civil Service serving in the plains of Jammu and Kashmir often vacationed in Kashmir. But since they were not permitted to build permanent homes in the city because of the then Maharaja's suspicion of an attempted British presence in Srinagar, these officers chose to live in houseboats. The first houseboat, named Victory, was designed by Mr. M.T. Kenhard in 1888. There are now about five hundred houseboats on the Lake.
