90 Feet Road .

January 4, 2021 By Swapnil Suryawanshi

90 Feet Road is the southern segment of the Srinagar-Leh Highway (National Highway 1D), which connects Srinagar with Ladakh.  The 90 Feet Road begins in Soura, Srinagar, about 11.1 km north of the commercial centre of Lal Chowk. It extends north for seven kilometres (4.3 mi) and ends at Pandach, Ganderbal. Thereafter, NH 1D turns eastward toward Leh.

Its name reflects the fact that it is 90 feet (27 m) wide throughout. Locals call it Nammath, which is “ninety” in the Kashmiri language.

History :

In the neighborhood of Wontabowan, east of the 90 Feet Road, is Awanta Bhawan, a historical site built by Queen Amrita Prabha, whose husband, Meghwahana, was one of the Buddhist kings of Kashmir.The 90 Feet Road speeds access for Ganderbal residents to medical care, such as at the Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences.

The name “90 Feet Road” is not unique to Srinagar; India has several other roads by the same name, such as one in the Dharavi neighborhood of Mumbai.
