For centuries, Kashmir has a rich tradition of organizing Iftar. Asia's longest Iftar, stretching up to 1.6 Kilometers, was held on the banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar, India on Saturday.
More than 3500 people formed a 4,962 feet long chain of dastarkhans (dinning cloth) at the the Dal Lake.

This Ramadan is expected to bring the most challenging fast in decades since it's coinciding with the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere for the first time in over 30 years.
The party was organized by an event management company called 'Loud Beetle' in cooperation with civil society groups and business houses of Kashmir.
