This place is the main attraction for the tourists but still, the economy of Kashmir is depending on Agriculture. Traditionally the main crop is Rice which is also a chief food of the people who live here. As far as I know, rice is the heavy and worm to your stomach.

Indian corn, oats, wheat, and barley also were grown additionally.
One more thing I would like to tell you about Hinduism and Buddhism in Kashmir is, During the ancient and medieval period, It has been an important center for the development of a Hindu-Buddhist syncretism, in which Madhyamaka and Yogachara were blended with Shaivism and Advaita Vedanta.
