According to the Purana, Prajapati Kashyap with the aid of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva killed the water-emerged Asura and formed the kingdom of Kashmir. Another tale says Kashmir in the past was submerged in water and was called by the name Satisar i.e. the lake of Sati derived from the name Sati. At the end of 13th century Kashmir came under Muslim rule. The Tibetan Muslim prince came from Tibet and formed a kingdom in Kashmir when the prince died in 1338, Shah Mir became king. Thus was founded the Sultanate dynasty in Kashmir. Kashmir was the summer resort of emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shahjahan. The relics and memorials of Mughal imperial grandeur still fascinate tourists. After the fall of the Mughal, Kashmir enjoyed autonomy. Then Kabul brought Kashmir under his sway (1756-1819).
